New Discovery... Black Mountain's Real Summit (32/60)

That I am discovering so many new vistas and mountain trails in and around Rumford goes to prove that western Maine and my hometown have much to offer. Yesterday, I climbed Black Mountain again for the 20th or 30th time. This time, however, I wandered down a road at what I've always thought was the top. Then, I connected to a second road that went up to a huge tower on the real summit of Black Mountain. As you'll see from the pictures below, I found unusual views of Whitecap Mountain, Sunday River, and the White Mountains plus partially obstructed views off toward Weld.

Hiking Whitecap Mt with Gayle (31/60)

What a terrific celebration to be able to hike Whitecap with my fiend Gayle. I'm so thrilled she has taken up hiking again.  The day was fairly warm and the sun filled the sky. Really, for November, a brilliant day.  For the full album on Facebook, go here.
