Photos From Emma Matilda HIke
It snowed last night and this morning. Nevertheless, its my day off, so I prepared a goodly daypack and headed out. Its over 11 miles of trail, and I have my bear spray.
Every once in awhile there will be a 3 x 5 metal marker nailed to a tree. I love the patina they've developed over the years.
This large moose was feeding at Christain Pond. He wasn't too upset I took his photo.
A wonderful day hike which gave opportunity to navigate when the trail became buried in snow, and no other hikers were out until I neared the Overlook. Some vacationers wanted to be sure they were on the right trail, and told me about all the elk they'd seen.
Elk are abundant this year, too.
