I took another trip up to the top of Mink Mountain today. It takes about 30 min to reach the top. It's all up hill right from the road. Although the trail has been traveled, it has probably been several weeks since anyone has been on it. I was making post holes at the top, 16" deep. I went as far as the bench and spent about 45 min on top. The descent was much easier.

And my reason for the trip,
a panorama view from the top spanning about 180 degrees
not bad for a first attempt at stitching photos.
I'm working on another, hopefully better one.
I'll post it tomorrow if it turns out.
