From The Top of Pigeon Hill
Last night’s hard frost gave way to a beautiful, crisp autumn day. Hannah and I enjoyed the day with our annual hike up Pigeon Hill.
This is Petit Manan Light from half-way up Pigeon Hill. We took a boat cruise out to Petit Manan in August.
The views from the top are glorious. This picture from our August cruise shows Pigeon Hill from Narraguagus Bay. The summit is 317′ above sea level.
And here’s the requisite self-portrait with the camera propped precariously on a rock. The timer gives me 10 seconds to scramble across the uneven ground to pose. These self portraits have become the hallmarks of our mother/daughter hikes!
