Beautiful hiking day - 60's and sunny with only a slight breeze.
The summit of Eliot is wooded and offers no views but there is a bit of a view from a ledge near the top.
Last time we took the new trail- not on the map- but today we went to the top before taking the trail down to the brook
The brook was quite low
so Kelley had to look for pools
Leaves on the water were pretty
and some pretty fungi - new to me
On the ride home.
Turned out to be a good day. Kelley was enthusiastic and did well. We met a couple of people with dogs ( we rarely see anyone on this hike) and that also pleased her. 1 3/4 hours
