Spitzenberg

April 21, 2009

Carol, Elizabeth and Bob went up the hill to Spitzenberg. Before the top of this mighty massif is reached, the Hudson Trail bends to the right. To the left is the steep ascent of the summit cone. At this magic spot, many things have taken place; to wit, there is the old sign, almost completely grown over.

The bunny shown below had writing on it suggesting a eulogy to a dirt biker. For us, it marked a happy day out hiking and trail blazing.
