In mid-May 2018, I did another one of my oddball adventures. This one was located a bit south of New Hampshire’s Crawford Notch area, and it involved a bushwhack to a rocky outcropping along the spur of Mt. Bemis that projects northeasterly toward Davis Brook. Exciting stuff . . . yes? :-)
|Google Earth image showing my destination circled in yellow. (Please note that this image is oriented such that WEST is at top, rather than more traditional NORTH at top positioning for most maps.)|
|At the beginning of the bushwhack, I stopped for a quick peek of lower end of Davis Brook. (Just as a possible note of interest, further upstream there are some awesome waterfalls!)|
|There was pleasant bushwhacking through open hardwoods for the vast majority of the trek. However, it was steep . . . about 1,100 ft elevation gain over a total distance of about 0.8 mile.|

|Upon returning to my parked car along Rt. 302, I did a short trek off the side of the road to Bemis Brook where I snapped this photo.|
|And, on my way back home I stopped at the Rt. 302 pull-off (near Arethusa Falls Road) and snapped this zoomed image of Mt. Washington.|
