The road to the new lot is generally in decent shape though I suppose it gets pretty soft sometimes, but it is maintained due to the heavy use. In winter it's sometimes better than Beaver Pond Rd....

While I was nowhere near identifying enough to pass a quiz on the picture of the High Peaks, I think I'd be embarrassed to put my name on this one looking west with how few I could name. And don't...

When I clicked on the link it would zoom in, but not very much. I then closed it out and clicked on it again and it worked the way it's intended. Curious, I tried the procedure again and it worked...

Fantastic, thanks. This was one of those trips I feel like a picture or two might end up getting framed, and if one is the High Peaks, everyone who sees it is going to ask which peak is which.

Thanks, between a cheap phone and a nice camera I ended up with some good shots. I'm afraid I haven't gotten far with my identification of the High Peaks using maps or internet research. Anyone...

Pharaoh Paradise
