Mount Cutler

Mount Cutler is an easy early-season hike within the city limits. You can see the trail winding around the mountainside.
One of the side-paths goes to the top of this cliff.
Here is the view from the top of that cliff, looking towards the city.
Here's one from almost the same place as the previous photo, but looking in the other direction.
There's always lots of interesting plant life.
Trees will hang on anywhere!
This is my entry for Our World Tuesday - I love hiking in my part of the world.

Beautiful shots! I'm glad the snow is gone and you are able to enjoy some warmer weather :-)

The expression “grasping at straws” came to mind after seeing the tree roots cling like grasping fingers to the earth!

The views are awesome!

But with my new vertigo, I won't be able to handle anything like this anymore.

What a fantastic view, Al!
You took great photos!
Sounds to me that to hike to the top of this cliff is not easy...

How fun to see trees growing this way. They don't give up life easily.. lovely photos and fun to see the contrast of high mountains and flat land. I would like to hike there.

I've made an edit on my last blog post, considering the height of the peak. And a comment to your comment.
But the difference i minimal. I guess you have fresh mountain air each day.. :)

Boy, you better be watching your step on that trail. It looks like a long ways down. It's amazing that this place is within the city limits. Great photos of a beautiful place Al.
