Fall Mountain pictures

Today we went up Fall Mountain, the major extent of our hiking "career." We've been up it 4 times now. It's not the hardest climb but it's enough for people like David and I! And now that I'm resting this evening my toe is aching. Ugh. Really annoyed that I'm STILL having problems with that.

We usually have the whole place to ourselves but today there were many people. And dogs! Most of the dogs were fine. There was Molly, a really sweet lab mix who Dahlia enjoyed meeting. The two labs we saw on our way out from the top were on leashes and we all just steered clear of each other. But then there was the Chihuahua. *sigh* So his owner picked him up once he saw Molly and Dahlia and muttered something about his having issues with other dogs. And they went down below. Well, apparently while down there he decided to just let him off leash and the dog took off away from him, came careening up, saw Dahlia first and went after her. Dahlia, of course, had to be all "IMA GONNA SHOW YOU BITCH!" and tried to pin the little sucker down. I got her away and the other woman who was there with him, put a leash on the dog and said to the guy "I thought you weren't going to let him off leash!" Yeah not the smartest move there buddy. (And later on, on the way down, the dog was off leash again and went after Molly...Ugh).

But other than that it was a nice time. We met a lot of cool people and chatted for awhile with them all. We all hid out under the trees when a rainstorm suddenly cropped up and soaked us all (we got the cameras put away in time! Phew!).

Happy dog!

I just kept thinking this would be the perfect tilt-shift photo. And look! I can turn it into one!

This is Molly. They tied her up to a tree for a short bit while they all went down below. Which meant I had a chance for photos!

Those are some great shots in the woods. The view at the top is gorgeous - I love rolling hills.

Tilt-shift always reminds me of Mr. Rogers.

Tilt-shift TOTALLY reminds me of Mr. Rogers. It's not really my thing and I actually find it kind of annoying most of the time, but it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the photo.

Those are actually mountains in the background! They're pretty distant, but they're much bigger than hills!

I guess I am so used to mountains being rocky and jutting, that I don't think of them being covered with anything else!

Haha yep! They don't call them the "Green mountains" for nothing! They're all covered in trees and they're really OLD mountains so they're worn down enough (most of them at least) that they're below the tree line and so trees all the way to the top.

I love this one: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8179/7916961552_8ac48ea317_z.jpg

and the one two down from that. I like the "offset dog in nature" theme I guess. :)

Molly has a beautiful face.

And that is a hell of a view.

It is a GORGEOUS view. People have been going up there for well over a hundred years and there are photos back to about a hundred or more years ago from the same spot.
