We left Acadia Friday but before we packed up we took one last hike. Our favorite is the hike closest to where we stay on Beech Mountain. It's not too long but has a little of every type of trail. It also has this beautiful view of the lake that "our" house is on.
I never tire of seeing the granite steps on the trails around the park. I can't even imagine how long it took to put all of these stones in place. One thing's for sure, they don't require any ongoing maintenance!
We've probably hiked this trail 4 or 5 times but it's the first time I've noticed this profile.
We usually see turkeys in various places around the park but Chris commented the night before we left that he hadn't seen any this week. Then we headed to Beech Mountain for this hike....

Turkeys on the right! That satisfied is desire to see some turkeys!
On the way up and back I got to do lots of crochet in the car. It's about 16 hours each way so I have a lot of time. I did a baby hat to go with the blankets and 2 hats for my brothers step-grands. These are in their school colors. I have 2 more to make for the other 2 kids and I ordered the yarn while I was in the car. I still need to stitch these together to finish them off.
About the drive, I really have sympathy for those of you who live around Boston. The traffic is miserable, no matter what time you are there.
The only other yarn I had in the car was the leftover baby blanket yarn. I bought way too much of that yarn! I started a C2C. This is going really fast and will probably be done in a few days. It's going to be a little smaller so if I finish it I'll add it to the gift. This one might make a good car blanket. But I'll also give her the option of gifting or donating it.
I'm still going to have some yarn leftover but it will go in a scrap donation blanket.
This week I have a lot of dyeing stuff to catch up on but I hope to have some time to sew on the blue quilt.
