Mount Wachusett in the Fog

Just back from a very nice hike up Mount Wachusett, a large hill in central Massachusetts. My brother's dogs lead the way up the first stretch, an old farm lane.

Oak trees lining the lane.

Giant windmill one passes partway up.

Scenery on the ascent.

The spectacular view from the summit. It was so foggy that after blundering into this large clearing we had a hard time finding the clearly marked trail down.

Hemlock grove on the descent. It was lovely. The morning's rain cooled everything off, and we enjoyed the cool and the absence of crowds while only getting drizzled on a little.
