August is flying by!

Here we are with two thirds of August behind us already..  before we know if, the kids will be back in school, and maybe it won’t be quite as crazy in the Park.  We learned that access to Cadillac Mt. was closed down twice last week because of the overwhelming crowds…  Yesterday we were lucky to find parking along the loop road near the trailhead for the Bubbles and Pemetic..  First we tackled The South Bubble..  the trail on the lake side is rated as difficult.. and it was pretty cool..  we met a family from New Durham NH which is just over the border from Wolfeboro where I used to live..  the kids were real troopers, having ridden their bikes from Eagle lake and then doing this hike..   south bubble   Soon after reaching the summit, the fog rolled in and obscured the view of Jordan Pond.

The Bubbles are pretty popular, and we met quite a few people along the trail..  we found our way back to the parking lot and then crossed the road to the beginning of the Northwest Trail up Pemitic mt.    we met far fewer folks on this trail which is roughly twice as high and challenging in a number of ways..   totally awesome!  pemitic nw trail 1this section which goes through a ravine is probably the most interesting.. pemitic nw trail 2 we were totally socked in by the fog at the top.. but it was satisfying to reach the summit just the same..  some water and gorp makes every moment good!  pemitic summitWe got home in time to  prepare our 4th evening of  making shortcake and entertaining..  and we had a wonderful time with Mathew and Celeste and their kids..    Today just might turn out to be a “stay at home” day.. I have some projects in mind for around our campsite, and we are getting a good start by doing an early morning laundry session at the moment 🙂

      we continue to pinch ourselves to see if this is real.. what a cool way to spend the summer! We are beginning to realize that there is a whole lot more to see and do here than we can manage in just one year.. we will have to start a list for things to do next year…
