Bald Mountain and Artists Bluff, September 13, 2009

Today was a Sage day! This means I got Sage and Hugh took Alex. Hugh took Alex up the climber's path on Cannon, and I did exactly as Sage requested: miniature golf and Bald Mountain.

Miniature golf went well (is it possible for miniature golf NOT to go well?). Next came "Sage's mountain" (she's renamed it).

After flying up the trail and mugging for a photo at the intersection with Artists Bluff...

...we came to the first little climb.

Here's the view from the top of that little ledge.

Next came the bigger ledge, which Sage enjoys. The kid loves to scamper up rock.

Less than fifteen minutes after getting out of the car, we were there!

We had our ceremonial chocolate...

...then admired the views. 'Twas a cloudy day, but it was still pretty.

We lounged for quite a while, Sage exploring all the nooks and crannies of the various ledges. Eventually we made our way back down to the intersection, and decided to do the full route over Artists Bluff.

After some nice ambling through the woods, we walked over the summit and headed down the stone steps.

Before we knew it, we were at the Artists Bluff trailhead.

It was a great day. Miniature golf and Bald is good.
