Our goal for the day was to take the Baldface Circle Trail (again) and Bicknell Ridge Trail clockwise over South Baldface (on the left) and North Baldface. So here we go.

Looking back to South Baldface. Kezar Lake in Lovell shows in the background and Pleasant Mountain is visible in the haze.

Wild River Valley and the Carter-Moriah Range. Mount Washington is there too.

Not far down the Bicknell Ridge Trail we spotted a Boreal Chickadee. Perhaps he was surprised by the warm weather too.

We had a great autumn day to enjoy this, perhaps my favorite, trail in the White Mountains.
