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! - TIMber64
