Baldface Mountain a great find

Thanks for your story about Baldface Mountain [Return to Debar Pond, July/August 2014”]. Ted Mack and I bushwhacked it last week and enjoyed lunch with a view.

As you said in your article the woods were pretty open until the dog-hair spruce toward the summit. We did get a bit turned around on the way down, coming out at the south end of the pond initially. There is a huge old metal culvert, partially flattened, in the inlet at that end of the pond, and I was wondering what use it might have been put to. Any thoughts?

We also had a nice paddle on the pond prior to the climb and were treated to quite a display by several loons, apparently a territorial dispute, or maybe an interloper trying to edge out a rival. Ted does a bit of trapping winters, so he was checking for beaver, mink, and muskrat sign as well.

What a gorgeous spot!

The Explorer has given me another nice memory. Keep up the good work.
