Our little hiking party consisted of myself, Wesley and Chris.
The blue dot trail was VERY uphill.
Unsurprising...considering it was us climbing the mountain!
Of course...Wesley made sure to leave plenty of pee-mail all along as we went.
When we realized we were finally hitting the top and it was almost time to start heading back down! WOOHOO! Treeline!
This was the view from the top of the mountain. That's the Delaware river there on the right, and on the other side of the river is Pennsylvania.
A picture of me and Wesley at the top. I took the picture just above from where we are sitting in the picture below...Chris refused to get any closer. lol
Another view-point. Again with the Delaware behind me...New Jersey to the left and Pennsylvania to the right of it.
We ran into A LOT of people coming back down on the red, or Mt. Tammany, trail. Felt like a bunch of trout heading upstream against all the other hikers. lol A lot of the way down was steepish rock scrambles that looked a lot like this one:
More views with me and Wesley as we came back down.
The last rock scramble!
Wesley did really, REALLY amazingly good. There were other people on the trail with their dogs (among then we saw a lot of pit bulls, a Burmese Mountain dog, and a few border collies) and everyone seemed surprised with their bigger dogs to see my little miniature poodle hitting the trail!
All in all we had quite a lot of fun...and I can't wait to head out and do it again on a different trail before it gets to cold out.
