4/14/14 Eliot Mtn. and Harbor Brook


A little warmer ( 50's) but cloudy and foggy- supposed to clear but it did not until the end of the hike.

The start of the Eliot Mtn. Trail looked promising- no snow or ice.


It did get pretty wet though, with parts of the trail like small streams


The summit of Eliot does not offer views but fog would have obscured them anyway


The trail down the other side of Eliot and the Asticou were also in good shape. When we reached Harbor Brook, Kelley was into the water which is shallow where it is crossed by a bridge.


The Harbor Brook Trail was a big change - still a fair amount of snow in places and quite a bit of ice.


Mostly I could maneuver around the ice - it was a problem for Kelley as there were not as many places she was willing to enter the stream. Still it's a pretty trail and worth the extra care needed to maneuver.








Another interesting hike with a variety of trails and scenery.  2  3/4 hours

    1. Hi Kim - As we were hiking I thought it looked a bit lusher. An inch of new snow this morning.
