Gleaned from the trail while on my “stretch my legs” hike up the Steep Hill and beyond.

P52 37 of 52 Acorn Caps and Oak Leaves

This week has been a “red letter” one for me hiking up the Steep Hill. I made it to the top without stopping both times I hiked up the hill this week! It’s an 11% grade up to the top where my Lonely Tree is growing. See some trail images of the Steep hill here.

I think going up all those stairs last week while on the cruise ship paid off. 🙂

  1. This was an amazing experience and I am in awe of your photography, Deborah! You could make a book of your stunning captures. I would buy it for my coffee table! hugs xo

    1. Thank you so much Melissa! I’ve been hiking that hill for years, and until now I’ve had to stop a couple of times on the way up. I have always wanted to get to the top sans stopping. I hope I’ve finally got fit enough to keep it up. 🙂

    1. It’s a good workout, but not as serious as hiking up Mission Peak. That mountain is like your recent hike with Faith to Mt. Monadnock. It has 4 trails to the top. The steepest is just over 2 miles up and steep! The other trails are steep, but a little longer. I’ve never been able to get to the top Mission Peak without stopping along the way. One day…maybe I will. 🙂

A penny for your thoughts...
