Blueberry Mountain

It didn't quite live up to its name, Blueberry Mountain, but it was a nice hike nonetheless. Perhaps since it is such a popular hike for this isolated spot in the White Mountains, others got most of the blueberries earlier. Or, yes, the bears were busy.

Along the White Cairn Trail.

The view across Cold River Valley with South Baldface in the center.

Looking over to the Basin Pond. The Ragged Jacket and Basin Rim form part of the surrounding "basin". The Basin Pond road has turned back to dirt and the parking area has been reduced in size considerably. Be careful parking a long vehicle.

Looking eastward: first Shell Pond, then a portion of Horseshoe Pond, and beyond is Kezar Lake. The higher ridge is Pleasant Mountain in Bridgton (see an older blog post for our hike up that).

My favorite kind of trail.

And back down on private property of the Stone House, Rattlesnake Gorge. We didn't have time to stop at the pool back upstream. Another time. That is even nicer than the gorge. It is very generous of the landowners to allow the trail access across their property.

 

Another day, another sunset.
