July 4 at Eagle Hill
This 4th of July found my family at the top of Eagle Hill in Stueben. We hiked the network of trails with Gidget scampering along. Gidget was a trooper, scaling all but the largest of rocks and steep climbs. Then curiously, a branch across the pass would baffle her.
The trails took us through moss covered forests to panoramic ocean views blueberry barrens and a wonderful field of ferns. The fern-field was my favorite spot along the way – they were so tall that they all but swallowed us.
Watching for Hannah on the trail.
The view of Cadillac Mountain across Gouldsborough Bay.
Taking a break – it’s a long hike for a little dog.
Keeping up through a blueberry field.
Gidget carried up and over a particularly large bolder.
Our lunch time view perched atop a bolder.
A crazy big field of ferns.
The ferns all but swallowed up Hannah.
The view from Pinkham Bay Road on the trip home.
It was a wonderful family outing for holiday. Here’s hoping you enjoyed your Independence Day as much as we did!
