On Hopkins Mountain

June 6, 2022

I got busy last week and plum forgot my blog. Lots happening: a new job, looking for a place to live (still), and the hiking season in full swing. Here’s a pic from Hopkins, one of my favorites for the view.

Every other time I’ve climbed this peak, the black flies tortured me all the way up. Yesterday there was a stiff breeze and no bugs.

Hopkins is not considered one of the “high peaks,” but there is enough change in altitude to make it considerably cooler than the valley. This is the place to get the best view of the taller peaks in Ausable region.
