11/8/16 Catherine Mountain

Another pretty day - 40's but sunny and no wind . This is a hike we hadn't done in awhile - little water for Kelley and a little more strenuous than our recent hikes.

One of our first views on the way up.

Kelley found a little water

A little further along

There is a lot of granite on this trail and this is the largest sheet. On one winter hike we got caught by an ice storm and I ended up sliding down on my but on sections like this.

A little more water

 Reindeer Lichen

Turned out to be a good hike - part way up I no longer needed my jacket and Kelley was more energetic and enthusiastic than she has been in awhile. We rarely meet anyone on this trail but today we met four women coming down on our way up. This pleased Kelley and we had a nice chat about trails in the area. 1 3/4 hours 


  1. Oh my-that sliding down the granite sheet must have been a scary one!
    Gorgeous sunshine. Glad Kelley had such a great hike (and visit!)

    1. Thank you Sue- I was really happy for her. You are right about coming off that mountain - weather here can change very quickly
