A Hike on Xmas Eve, Eve....

It's been a while since my last post - been busy, christmas season, etc. blah, blah, blah... That was pretty much my attitude until Uncle Brad decided a hike was in order! I have to admit, this online thing has been kinda gettin' me down lately... flyguy is quiet.. like crickets chirping quiet.. and it's tying season! People should be posting like crazy! A few good lads are carrying the site but it's a far cry from what it once was  ---- big thanks to the lads who ARE posting!

Anyways, back to the hike - Brad (my wife's brother - and good all around guy) suggested we do "Friar's Nose" up by Poley Mountain in behind Sussex. He said it was up hill the whole way and man he wasn't lying! We got there before noon and started up the trail.

See that 'bump' to the top and left of the gingerbread house? That's our destination! The trail starts about 20 yards to the right of the house.

Parlee Brook runs by this house and I believe a water powered turbine provides the power.

Sharleen! XOXO!
Uncle Brad!
We had a great Christmas Eve, Eve! Thanks Brad for the great hike! We finished the day off with a charcoal barbeque - YUM!
