Our Hike Up Bald Mt
Tuesday, June 02, 2020
On Sunday, May 30th, I had a great day hiking! This is the second time we have visited Bald Mountain, Hancock, NH in the Spring. This privately owned Conservation Land is protected from current and future development. The full name of the lake connected to the trails is the DePierrefeu Willard Pond Wildlife Sanctuary. There are loons that nest on this pond.
We stopped on a bench to enjoy the breeze from the lake. Even though it was May 31, it was a bit chilly at 10 am.
I was glad to have my fleece and long pants on. John was wishing that he had worn long pants. It was a clear and breezy morning, and we had the trail to ourselves.
It was a perfect day for a hike. I led the way up the trail, and John followed behind me. We moved along at a steady pace.
About half a mile from the summit, We stopped on a rocky area and enjoyed our PBJ sandwich and some great views.
This is one of our favorite view spots in the area!
I found an old pine tree that was just covered in woodpecker holes.
I found a downed Spruce tree that was covered in small cones.
My biggest find our the day was a patch of 10 lady slippers.
