Mt. Cardigan: August 23rd, 2008

Wow!! A weekend with no Rain!! After a month of rain, this hike was a real treat. The weather was awesome, clear blue skies, low humidity and a pleasant 70 degrees. The 1.5 mile hike to the summit (3,121 feet) takes you through deciduous forest and into, and through, a boreal forest below the summit. The real treat is the last quarter mile below the summit where the hike is across the polished granite rock (actually it is Kinsman Quartz Monzonite) to the summit. These rocks were formed by the collision of Africa with North America 380 million years ago. The views are outstanding. The cairns are even beautifully built to lead you to the top where a fire tower stands. For Groovy Mom, Dad and Girl, & old dog, this is the third fire tower this year. Groovy Dog, although 14 years old, really enjoys this summit cheeseburger thing. Although you have heard of the nano cheeseburger, we would like to introduce the pico burger.

No it is not made with pica meat. The bun is two cheerios with the burger and cheese between the two cheerios….perfect for Groovy boy the youngest cheeseburger summiteers. At 7 months he consumed his first cheeseburger on top of Cardigan Mt. No Cardigan sweaters were worn.

    The weather has been ridiculous this summer!! It was GREAT to finally get a weekend where you could actually see something from a summit, besides your own cheeseburger of course!
    Let me know if you’re up for a bigger hike sometime, probably without the Groovy Kids I’m guessing.
