If I didn't have to work for a living, I would spend most of late September and early October in Baxter State Park, every year, as long as I'm on the right side of the daisies.

While I'm not able to do that (yet), I still feel very fortunate to be able to make at least one trip there every autumn.

On this particular Columbus Day weekend, we were able to hike Baxter and Hamlin Peaks on Saturday 10/6, and hobble and paddle around a bit on Sunday and Columbus Day, before heading home. Here are a few shots.

This View From The Top never gets old, even though I do.
