    Default a hike to Mt. Bond

    a beaver bog in the Pemigewasset Wilderness...








    Joe Pye Weed in bloom in the bog...







    a bull moose crossing the Pemigewasset River...






    I wanted to be in the middle of the river taking pictures but the current was more than I wanted to risk with camera in hand...











    He glanced back at me as he finished the crossing.






    view toward Franconia Ridge at treeline on Bondcliff...






    Bondcliff, Bondcliff Ridge and Mt. Bond...






    goldenrod along the ridge, West Bond in background...





    alpine flowers on Bondcliff...










    happy trails

    Default Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You never cease to amaze!! Don't know how you get those pictures. The shot of the moose is outstanding. Nothing like a hike to the bonds. One of my favorite spots.

    Its always funny how they look at you Patrick! I try to guess, if they could talk, what are they saying to you?

    Looks like a great hike, I always envy your experiences you find along the trail.

    That moose looking back at you is amazing. Great light, composition, and it's rare to see a shot of them in such a great stream. Another gallery worthy shot.

    I also like the Joe Pye Weed shot as well, but it comes with mixed emotions as Joe Pye weed is the first forebearer of the end of summer. So short...

    Congrats!

    Beautiful! We spent the last 6 days out on the trail and saw way less wildlife than in this post. Thanks for sharing again Patrick.

    "Care for a snack, Pat?"

    Always outstanding...

    The moose looking back is probably saying, "Aren't you coming??"..
