This is yet another case of me being lazy! It is so quick to provide a link to my Blog, whereas it takes some time to construct the links necessary to have my photos incorporated into a posting within this Forum (or any Forum for that matter). I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience with having to access my report via my Blog.

So, if you should happen to want to read my recent Blog report about a trip to Cherry Mountain (Mt. Martha + Owl's Head), then please click HERE (http://1happyhiker.blogspot.com/2011/05/cest-fini-marthas-mile-on-cherry.html).
This mountain provides some outstanding views of the Presidential Range, and some other nice views.

Very nice TR John! It's never a problem to click on your blog links. I think we all know how much time it takes to put reports together on multiple sites. Thanks for helping to maintain the trails that all of us love to hike so much!!! :)

John - I've been struggling with the same dilemma since I went back and resurrected my blog. Definitely too much work to format trip reports for both the forums and blog - particularly since the formatting is so different. For now I've just been trying to include a picture or two in the forum post and one or two lines that will hopefully let readers decide whether they want to visit the full story. I will ALWAYS visit your blog posts knowing the interesting things that I find in each report so you need not go to any lengths to tempt me. This one was certainly no exception. Your adopted trail (or the one that you've brought us to here) is beautiful as are the views to which it leads and I look forward to visiting it someday. I also want to say thank you for being a trail adopter. You and all the other wonderful people who have taken on this labor (which I'm sure is a labor of love) have made the mountains a better place for everyone. Blog on - I will continue to follow!

Bob and Mark: My sincerest thanks to both of you for providing some reassurance and understanding about the quandary presented by blogging and concurrent posting to a Forum. Also, I know it's unnecessary to provide a "thank you" for a "thank you", but on behalf of all the other Trail Adopters out there, we value your appreciation of the work we do. And Mark, you are "spot on" when you say that it's a labor of love!

Great work, John! I agree with Bob and Mark in that I don't consider it a bad idea to just say a few words and post a link to your blog. It doesn't make you lazy either. Keep 'em coming.

Donna:)
