Hubbard Brook is within easy reach of I-93.
It seems that I constantly encounter these boulders along nameless ridges that are just waiting to be climbed. New Hampshire is the Granite State, after all. This particular rock is about a foot taller than me.
I used the rock and the tree trunk to the left for leverage to climb up and slid down the back where the drop was steeper but shorter.
About a hundred yards away I found this larger boulder. Good thing I had already indulged my compulsion to climb.
I found this woodpecker tree on my way out. The tree is still alive, but most likely is going to succumb to insects or disease soon.
