Couple of Hikes in Lumpy Ridge

Over the past couple days, Molly and I have rediscovered the beauty of hiking at Lumpy Ridge. We hiked up to the Twin Owls last Friday and then up to Gem Lake yesterday (Sunday). Wow is it beautiful up there. The orange granite contrasting against the green trees, white snow, and blue sky. The rock has a certain shape to it that I find almost soothing. A lot of rock giving a hard, cold, edgy feel but this rock seems warm, smooth and rounded, almost sexy. OK, this is starting to feel a little weird so I'll move on to the pictures.

Like I said, these pics are from two different hikes. The Twin Owls day was extremely windy, somewhat overcast and in the mid 20's. The Gem lake was sunny, still and cold (15 degrees). And the pics...
