Hiking On Cedar Mountain

Recently I went for a hike up Cedar Mountain and took roughly 20 pics and one video while spending an hour tramping around the mountain. I thought now would be a good time as any to resurrect this blog and share one of my favorite places to get lost within myself. So without further ado, here is Cedar Mountain.

These pics were taken within the first fifteen minutes of my hike. The first one shows the entrance to Cedar Mountain, which located directly across from the end of my street. The remaining six were taken at various points while I was hiking up the initial 8-9% incline (it eventually grew to about a 11% or so incline the further up I went), either facing towards the street or off to my right as I faced the mountain.
Even though the temps were in the hi 60's/lo 70's outside, once I got about ten feet inside the mountain the temp dropped roughly five degrees. The higher I went the chillier it got as even though the sun poked its head through (as you can see in some of those pics), the ratio of shade to sun was about 4 to 1 in favor of the shade.
As you can see, autumn hasn't quite taken hold in the mountain yet, but in the coming weeks, maybe it has.


  1. That is so beautiful! How neat to live so close by.

  2. M: Thanks. It's one of the few things that I encounter on a daily basis that makes life tolerable.

  3. Yeah it's very beautiful and to live so near to it must be wonderful. I never take the view from our house for granted either. It's a constant reminder of how beautiful nature is.

  4. Joe: Thanks.

    I really do enjoy the mountain and in fact, I'm going to make an attempt at continuing my hike this coming weekend.

  5. Looks like a peaceful place to explore.
    The leaves are falling here already, without much color because there wasn't enough rain in Sept. We have tons of red vines n Burning bushes turning tho-
    At least the mountaintop isin't peaked with snow yet!

  6. Snaggle: It definitely is. We're getting some color right now, but not enough to really show off the mountain. And people are already talking about a potential harsh winter because the weather has been so mild so late in the year.
