9/28/14 Catherine Mountain

Forecast is for sunny and much warmer- this area was forecast to be a bit cooler. We took the route from Dynamite Brook Rd. The first part of the hike is a climb through woods and then a more open area with ledges with views.

Keeping an eye on Kelley

Part way down the other side of the mt. is a short spur that takes you to what are called the Catherine Cliffs

There had been no water for Kelley to get into the entire hike until very near the end she disappeared into the woods for awhile and when she returned it was evident that she had found a little water- only her feet and belly were wet. I thought she deserved some real water so we stopped at Fox Pond ( upper left of map) which was close and on the way home.

A pretty hike in spite of it being a bit warm- when we got home Bangor reached a record high of 84 degrees- and the lack of water for Kelley to get into. Normally on this hike we would have climbed to Caribou for a view with our lunch but we passed that up today. We met no one and had it all to ourselves.
