Rock Candy Mountain
We spent a week in Canada this summer and always climb Rock Candy Mountain near the camp. It is a wonderful view overlooking Cumming and Tunnel lake for miles. On the way up we found a huge mushroom growing out of a tree the size of a basketball.
Then on the climb up there was a party coming up the front of the mountain by way of the rock slide. Not too smart not only because of the rock slide but the area is full of poison ivy. You can see one of them right in the center of the picture.
Then the view from the top of the mountain, where I would love to have a cabin. In fact, shortly north of this place is a cabin high a top of the mountain that you access from the road back to Little pickerel lake. I wonder what an evening up there in a lightning storm is like. I bet you can see and hear it for miles.
Here is the gang at the top of the hill, now ready for ice cream at the trading post.
