7/17/15 Ragged Mountain



Nice morning - 70 and sunny. This is a fairly long drive but I wanted someplace we hadn't been in awhile to stimulate Kelley who likes them along with new places.

The trail starts through the woods and is basically flat for a good distance but once you start climbing it's up the rest of the way.


A little bit of water


Out of the trees as we get closer to the top


An interesting wildflower


 and ripe blueberries


View from spot where we stopped for an apple break.


The trail near the top was harder for Kelley than I remembered. she is doing OK here but there were spots she had to find work arounds


A couple of views from the top





Kelley and I were both tired


View as we start down








Kelley found a little more water on the way down



A pretty good hike, though more arduous than planned. A few mosquitoes and only a couple of deer flies.  On the way down Kelley was tiring and no longer running ahead and she drank the water I carry for her - usually she is not interested. Tomorrow rain is forecast so we will have an easy day.  3 hours

  1. That lily is sure a "hot" color. Nice!
    And ripe blueberries--an added bonus. The views are so nice--I'll bet that's a nice picnic spot (minus the bugs!)
    Have a good weekend, John
