Over "spring" break, three weeks ago, my intrepid son joined me for a hike up Morse Mountain.
In Maine spring doesn't really kick in until May, but at least the snow is melting in mud season.
The trail starts by a saltwater marsh before climbing into the woods. We hiked with
ice-stabilizers strapped to our boots, but snowshoes would have been better.
The mountain is really a hill, but it offers a spectacular view of the marsh and ocean. You can click on my Morse Mountain label below to see this view in other seasons. Over the last three weeks the snow has melted to patches. We were in the 60's these past few days! I shall spare you the photos of mud.
