Hiking in Black and White ~ 9-7-12

 I took this shot this morning before leaving for school. 
We have several of them placed strategically on our property.

One of the mountains Buddy summited in Maine on his hike this summer. 
Those are his poles.

Another mountain range he climbed this summer.

"Over every mountain there is a path,
 although it may not be seen from the valley."
~Theodore Roethk

  6. Adore all these scenes in monochrome! But my favourite must be the second photo! The poles/posts in a cross shape and rocks (like a sacred cairn) give a sense of personal achievement to the mountain! Delightful!

  13. Fine series of the trail. Makes me want to walk the trail from Georgia to Main, not that I will, it just makes me want to do that.
