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.

It was a wonderful family outing for holiday. Here’s hoping you enjoyed your Independence Day as much as we did!

    Beautiful views. The ferns remind me of hiking in the Sierra Nevada. We would come upon ferns that reached to my shoulder. Amazing!
