Hadley Mountain

Aim with the Hadley Mountain Fire Tower in the background from the summit of Hadley Mountain. I used the Orton effect on this photo giving it the soft glow without losing detail. Not sure if I like it but it doesn't make the photo any worse so it looks OK.

 

The area northwest of the tower is interesting with more views and some fire places, and a view of the tower itself.

 

This was my first "real" hike post ACL surgery. the quotes around real are because obese people (who I am almost one of), children, and parents with children in child carriers were walking the trail. However, in their defense this is a short but legitimate hike 1.8 miles and 1500+ feet gained. not exactly flat, and while the trail is well maintained it is steep in spots. Lots of fun and a good workout and a big confidence booster that I'll be 100% shortly.
