Hiking Near Mount Greylock - June 23-24, 2002

These pictures were taken with my Olympus C2100-UZ digital camera on June 23 and 24, 2002, near Mount Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts. Just one picture is from the 23rd, when we (myself, Cathy, Charles) drove up to the Greylock summit. The rest are from a short but steep hike on the morning of the 24th. After that, Charles and Cathy stayed and camped the next two nights.

All images are 24-bit JPEGs and should be viewed on a 24-bit display. Quality is likely to be very poor when viewed on an 8-bit display. Most images are shown at a resolution of 640x480, but are available in 800x600 and full 1600x1200 sizes by clicking on the links after the captions.

Now on Monday morning, Charles with the cars at a campsite at the Sperry Rd. Campground. [800x600][1600x1200]

Looking back from the road to the actual campsite. [800x600][1600x1200]

The start of our hike. Our trail for the morning is the Deer Hill Trail. [800x600][1600x1200]

The parking area near these trailheads. [800x600][1600x1200]

It wasn't far down the trail that we found our first small stream. [800x600][1600x1200]

Another view. [800x600][1600x1200]

Another small stream. [800x600][1600x1200]

And a small waterfall. [800x600][1600x1200]

An attempt to get a picture of a neat spider web. [800x600][1600x1200]

The web is up in this tree. [800x600][1600x1200]

The bigger waterfall at the "bottom" of this trail. It was all downhill to here, and all uphill after this. [800x600][1600x1200]

A better view of the waterfall. [800x600][1600x1200]

Another view of the same waterfall. [800x600][1600x1200]

And another. [800x600][1600x1200]

And another, from close to where the water is falling. [800x600][1600x1200]

We also passed this toad. [800x600][1600x1200]

There are lots of small bridges along this trail. This is taken from one of those. [800x600][1600x1200]

And there's the bridge. And Charles. Before the big climb. [800x600][1600x1200]

Same bridge. [800x600][1600x1200]

After climbing a bit, and after a rest part way up, we came to a flat area. [800x600][1600x1200]

With a lean-to. [800x600][1600x1200]

From the lean-to area. [800x600][1600x1200]

Down the hill from the lean-to is another small stream. [800x600][1600x1200]

More water at that spot. [800x600][1600x1200]

More. [800x600][1600x1200]

Back up near the lean-to, we see some steps built into the trail. [800x600][1600x1200]

After a while, we came to a broken old bridge. Cathy crossed it and there she is. [800x600][1600x1200]

Eventually, the trail flattened out. [800x600][1600x1200]

Back at my place, the moonrise over Prospect Mountain. Charles and Cathy are up there somewhere. [800x600][1600x1200]

A closer view of the moonrise. [800x600][1600x1200]
