What we found was the Harvard Quarry on top of Noyes Mountain, it has an elevation of 1503 feet and STEEP as a mother. And it wasn't gradually steep, it was heart attack (OMG I'm carrying the backpack with all the tools and snacks and water) steep. I kept trying to pass the torch on to my husband but he kept telling me I could do it. Finally I just took it off and kept walking...:-) It was heavy! Those dang tools and water were heavy. We had a perfect day. Little V was happy as a clam, and never complained NOT ONE TIME that he wanted to go home. He really LOVES rocks. And hiking too.
After that we took a long cut so we could go through Lewiston/Auburn and to my favorite Thai restaurant. Oh, we were so hungry we ate like we'd never eaten a day in our lives before. It was pretty good though. Big V has said about a million times that I shouldn't have taken him there today because the Spicy Duck was the best he's ever had...he wants to go back again tomorrow night!
Anyway, here are some pictures of our hike for you:
pounding away looking for treasures.
