Bigelow Range, November 2015

A "shoulder-season" hike to one of Maine's best mountain ranges. I was hoping to do a loop over several peaks, but didn't make fast enough progress so I turned around after topping out on the South Horn. I'll be back!

Also included here, a visit to Mosher Pond Outlet Falls, a.k.a Mosher Hill Falls.
