About Today’s Photo:
Robin and some friends & I took a bit of a bushwack hike up to the top of Bald Hill here in Huntington yesterday. Bald Hill is one of my favorite places—there are no real trails to the top so it requires a bit of navigation to get to, but it offers one of the best views of the Hump from anywhere being right smack-dab next to it. It also offers excellent skiing in the winter, so those who are willing to “earn their turns” by climbing first are amply rewarded!
