2. Here I am on the first day of vacation, having pounded through a moderately-rated hike up to the summit of Cook Mountain. A moderate hike with an equally moderate view. A good warm-up though.
3. While D fished, I hiked an easy trail by Owen Pond, on the way to Cobberas Pond. Gorgeous. Here's a tree growing over a huge boulder. I kinda wonder how it got started.
