From the road below you can see Bubble Rock sitting precariously on a large granite outcropping on the edge of the South Bubble.
We decided to hike the 768′ to see it up close. As usual, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a silly photo before I pushed the large rock down from where it was deposited at the end of the last ice age. I’m confident that another rock will find it’s way to the edge any day now.
While we were on the way up we passed the usual suspects for mid-week hikes. Most of whom are in their late 60′s. We picked up the pace to make sure that despite their enthusiasm for hiking, they would not beat us to the top.
From the top we could see the North Bubble which is about 100′ higher in elevation. We were tempted to ascend it but decided to pass since it was a piping hot 90 degrees and we had an 8 hour drive back to Boston. Next time North Bubble, next time…
