Porcupine quills at the bottom of the cliffs.
John thinks the porkie may have fallen off of the cliff (and survived)
because of the number of quills that were there.

Transformer on the Pole on the ROW-1.jpg
The transformer is nearly eye level because the slope of the

Well, that's all there is about this great hike. To view the other photos:

  1. Beautiful photos! I particular like the mushrooms, and of course the pictures of Oscar and Buddy :)

    I am planning to feature Vermont in today's installment of "Fun with Highways" for Super Tuesday. I immediately thought of you and your photography.
