Sunday Pigeon Hill Hike

Late this afternoon, the gray drizzly clouds that lingered all day moved on. I talked Hannah and Paul into an impromptu hike up Pigeon Hill.

This is the first time Paul tagged along with us on this hike.

2013 Pigeon Hill Pan

The view from the top is outstanding. I could sit on this rock and watch the view until the sun goes down.

But, the troops became impatient so down we went.

Porcupine on Pigeon Hill

I was excited to stumble across this little porcupine on the walk down. I scared the poor thing scurrying after it to snap a picture.


This last shot of the day is from Pinkham Bay Bridge on the way home. The light from the waning sun was beautiful.

A picture perfect way to start September.
