Just getting back from a great trip to the AMC Zealand Falls hut. The trip included a visit to Zea Cliff, which offered gorgeous views of the valley and a hike up Mt. Hale (4055′ elevation). Here is a panoramic shot of the view from Zea Cliff:
We went with hopes of being amazed by the colors of the fall New England foliage. The colors were gorgeous, but will probably peak in the next week or so. What really interested us was the micro-life found in ferns and other tiny plumage.
