Scaling El Capitan in free climb mode

Peace Corps Preserve Trail - Goose River

As a Returned Volunteer (one can't claim to be a veteran ) I was delighted to find that the new hiking trail near our house in Maine is the Peace Corps Preserve Trail. It runs along the Goose River which is the town line between Waldoboro and Friendship  It pours into the Medomak River at Delaney Cove. It was near the Goose River that Wilbur Morse first called a Muscongus Bay style sloop a "Friendship".
We hiked a mile or so as the temperature dropped (it was 24 F when we entered).  A few hours later it is 7 F and headed down. At least we're not in Montreal-25 F expected.
