Splendid, Indeed

I took some time late this afternoon to get out and about, climbing Elephant's Head Mountain, about a 10 mile drive south of here.  

There's an about a mile-and-a-half long access road (which is a bit overgrown, so I hiked it), and then the ascent to the summit.

The great views from the top are looking out over Lake Titus--a little gem here in the northern Adirondack foothills.

You see those silhouetted trees to the right?  The one toward the center of the shot had some graffiti carved into it's truck.  When I finally deciphered it (it's gotten a bit weather worn), it read: SPLENDOR.  

Aptly put...
