Crane Mountain: first hike

Today Neuro and I climbed Crane Mountain. The mountain is 1700 feet high at the summit, and despite the rough climb the view was breathtaking.

Rocky trail:

Pretty steep climb:

Midway up the mountain we stopped to take some photos:

This one really shows the perspective:

And eventually we DID reach the summit:

There were some little waterfalls along the way:

The weather was perfect, and the batteries in our cameras wore out before we did... which is why I am not sharing any photos of the loons we saw on the way home. :)

Mother Robin on her nest

I finally for close enough to get a photo of the mother robin sitting on her eggs! I am hoping to get a few shots of the babies when they hatch. :)
