Another take on the Nose

Since I have written about my love of Anthony’s Nose and you have seen many, many pictures of it before, I will only share  with you the new pictures that I took this time (7/15/16). I can tell you that I didn’t see anyone on the way up, on the top or on the way down. It was bliss!

I usually don’t get up to the Nose early enough to catch its silhouette as the sun rises behind it. Today, however,  although it was somewhat hazy, it wasn’t bad enough to ruin the picture.

Even though people have been flying the American Flag at the Nose for years, this is the first time that I have seen a Marine Corps flag flying with it!  I wish that the wind had been blowing the other way because I couldn’t get to the other side of the flag without risking life and limb. Very treacherous!

If you have some time, research Hessian Lake, which is located at the bottom of Bear Mountain.

As you look to the right of the Nose, you will find another excellent hike that will take you to the “Torne.”

And finally, this huge cairn that has made an appearance since the last time I was here. This had to have taken hours to complete!

And of course the cairn with my signature day pack pose:

If I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again-You gotta love the Nose!!!!

Happy hiking everyone!
