There were some really big trees. This is a white pine. It's the biggest one we saw, although we were supposedly within a mile of the largest tree in the park, a sycamore. The directions to it were sketchy, though.
Here are the upper branches of our pine.
Old turkeytail fungus is often as pretty as fresh.
The most significant feature of the day was the many gullies that had to be crossed (the source of the hills which were technically valleys). Water was not running in most of them. If it had been there would have been many, many lovely small and medium waterfalls. But it also would have been a lot more slippery. We'll settle for just seeing pretty rocks.
Just another gully that we walked beside and across.
We had dinner with Irene. Wonderful day.
