East Royce

Now for a post-Thanksgiving hike up East Royce on the Maine-New Hampshire border. The road through Evans Notch (ME 113) was still open, albeit a little icy just over the top.

The parking area is to the left just where the road dips out of site and the trail climbs off to the left.

First there is a waterfall:

And upward -- it is a mile and a half of non-stop ascent. The lower quarter was free of snow and ice.

And then it got challenging.

Daylight was running out so I didn't proceed beyond this point on the top. The real summit is in the woods and the north viewpoint was hard to get to on my last trip.

Thanks. I wandered around that tree comparing it to a big bonsai. Eventually this composition seemed to work.
