Mama and Baby Grouse
Today we hiked North and South Hancock Mountains in the Pemigewasset Wilderness. On the ridge between the peaks we can across a mama spruce grouse. She turned her back when she saw us and started clucking to gather her babies. There were at least seven scattered about the area and by the time she disappeared from view over a little rise they were all back with her.
Another beautiful hike and two more 4000 footers off my list.
