|This butterfly was having a dandy time in a field of fresh flowers.|

It's a relatively easy series of three or four hikes--none really testing, none long--on a ridge that gives you views of both sides of the mountain.
Here is some of what my photo buddy Anne Sampson and I discovered on today's jaunt in the woods.
|This purple lichen was on one of the rocks, looking like a cave painting.|
|Pine cones at the crest of the ridge.|
|An early sign of fall.|
|Anne climbs a steep rock ...|
|... to see what's on the other side. This.|
|Queen Anne's lace, I think.|
|Anne discovered these guys. I would have stepped on them.|
|This is what we came for.|
