A Pleasant Hike
Our Pleasant Mountain hike was nothing short of pleasant - how could it be otherwise. The weather was neither too hot nor too cold - it was pleasant. The inclines were neither too short nor too long - what a pleasant ascent. As we climbed we decided to take the extended loop via Sue’s Way - which was a pleasant surprise. Overall the terrain was pleasantly varied - rocky to boulders to grass plains. The density of the forest was varied as well - from deeply to lightly forested. On our hike we ran into a few people exchanging pleasantries in passing. The views from the top were more than pleasant – they we fantastic.
Overall it was a great hike (and, of course, pleasant as well). Thanks Tim for the great company and great pics.

Mo- It was definitely a pleasant hike from start to finish! Perfect weather to be hiking a familiar mountain in our own backyard. Not a very gigantic hill to climb, yet spectacular terrain and scenery. Thanks for posting and putting up with me!
