A gorgeous bluebird day to hike! Chilly, but not overly cold. Jon and I were wearing shorts. Great hike of the beautiful trails as we hiked to the three hills of Mt. Agamenticus near Ogunquit, Maine. Moderate climbing overall. Beautiful blue skies on top of Mount A with excellent views to the Whites and Atlantic Ocean, no clouds, and just a whisper of wind. Just amazing! We meandered to the nearby two wooded hills enjoying each other’s company, engaging with other hikers we met, and had the third hill all to ourselves for lunch. Nice hiking with our GayOutdoors buddies as always. Special welcome to Jim and Rob on their first GO adventure.Just a great day to be OUT!
