To help soften the blow of having to go to town on the weekend (I really hate going to Augusta when I don't already have to be there for work), we squeezed a morning hike in.
I hadn't been to this little mountain since E and Z were four years old and I had to lure them up the trail with orange slices and lollipops.
This time they ran up ahead and I didn't have to bribe them once.
The area is very pleasant, with big, old trees and a fire tower on top that you can climb.
The sky was so clear we could see the snow on top of Mt. Washington (way over in New Hampshire).
C and Z discovered this little milk snake hiding out in a crack in the rock.
A new trail has been added since our last visit, so we were able to make it a loop with no need of walking on the fire tower road.
