Great day for some Belknap Redlining. Cool and cloudy but with the the clouds high still had great views. Quick side trail to Charbonneau Cave. From Anna, views to Monadnock. From Shannon lovely local views of the lakes and hills. Great trails, easy on the feet. The Blue-Yellow blazes from Shannon could use some blue added to them. Had to go down a fair amount to find one with a bit of blue. Nice wetlands/ponds, stream. Neat to picture the old farmland out here with the stonewalls.
