11/15/13 Eliot Mountain and Harbor Brook

Something a little less arduous than yesterday's hike. We started from the trail head on Rte. 3 with several possible hikes in mind.

We came to the trail that leads to Thuya Gardens and never having taken it we decided we would. I expected that they would be closed and would not allow animals and this was the sign on the gate

Kelley didn't have five bucks anyway.

When we reached the summit we decided on the trail down to the old map house and start of the Asticou trail

After an apple break we took the Asticou across to the Harbor Brook Trail , one Kelley likes because of the stream it runs along side of.

And I found some pretty lichens

There is a spot just off the trail where we usually stop for lunch and Kelley always goes right to it.

After lunch we continued on down the trail . Though the stream was mostly quite low there were plenty of pools for Kelley to get into.

These leaves on the bottom of the stream had an odd silvery color

An example of how low the water was in some sections

Near the end of the trail

When we reached the road we had a short walk beside it to our car. A good hike- it was in the 40's and mostly cloudy rather than 50 and partly cloudy predicted - but comfortable enough . 2  3/4 hours
