Climbed Pigeon Hill And Didn’t See A Single Pigeon…

I’m not trying to be funny with the title of this post.  Well…I am, but, I’m serious too.  Not too far from my town is a small trail system that I like to hike on a regular basis.  You folks who have been following my posts for a while might remember me mentioning the Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge at some point, in a post long ago, in a state far, far away…  But seriously, just before the Refuge is another trail that climbs a decent size hill called “Pigeon Hill”.


I hiked this trail once when I first moved to this portion of Maine.  The trail I climbed was steep, straight up the side of the little mountain/hill.  This time, I resolved myself to climb the trail again but was surprised to see that a new trail had been blazed.  This new trail was a more gradual, switchback (I love that word.  Also a really good Celldweller song, look it up!) configuration.  So, I didn’t loathe this hike as much as I did the first time.

But getting back to the title of this blog, the hill is called Pigeon Hill yet on the entire hike, I failed to see a single pigeon.  Not a pigeon in sight on my way up the hill, and not a pigeon in sight on my way down the hill.  I was disappointed.  When a trail, hill, or mountain is named after an animal, I expect to see at least one or two of said animal there!  But, that’s just me.  [-_^]

Anyway, I did manage to get a decent little panorama at the top of Pigeon Hill.  Enjoy, folks!


Until next time…
