Backyard View

(make sure you click on the photo to see the entire panorama)

This view was taken about 500′ from my back door, a short bushwhack up the hill, this past Friday Nov. 4.  The mountain under the cloud is Speckled Mountain, so called due to the many colors of autumn leaves from the great variety of trees found there (unfortunately we are now past peak so only pine, beech and oak remain).  Speckled Mountain is the tallest mountain in this section of the White Mountains, known as the Speckled-Caribou Wilderness Area of the White Mountain National Forest.  We hope to climb to the summit of Speckled Mountain in the very near future (about a 7-mile roundtrip hike from my home).
