10/17/16 Eliot Mt. and Harbor Brook

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

  More water

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 


  1. Love the photo of the blue water and fall leaves!

  2. I enjoyed those leaves on the water as well.
    And that fungi is really neat--though I'm not ANY good at identifying them.
    Looks like a perfect day.
    Had our first sunny day in forever today. Picked tomatoes. Ridiculous! (but appreciated)

    1. Thanks Sue - we had 3 perfect days in a row and now they are saying rain which we really need. Amazing you are still picking tomatoes
