as i mentioned, brett and i went on a quick hike up the stowe pinnacle. i love this hike because it is quick and has a variety of terrain-- bridges, rocks, wide trail, skinny trail, big rocks, ladders, and even bigger rocks! and of course, there is the beautiful moment when the trees get shorter and shorter, and then you are above treeline. that, to me, is magical.
i did this hike twice last summer- once solo, and once in the fall with jenna, od & lu when lu was really too tiny to be hiking. it was fun to take her back there this summer so she could show off her leaping and running skills and lead us up the mountain. brett hadn't hiked any of the worcester range and this was a great introduction. it was a beautiful eve and we caught some amazing views & skies.
