Zeacliff Pond looking north towards the cliffs, September 2008

Looking north across the pond towards the cliffs that are part of the same mass of conway granite that forms Zeacliff. The Twin Way Trail, part of the Appalachian Trail, runs along the top of that ridge which connects Zeacliff and Zealand Mt which is west and to the left in this photo. The old Zeacliff shelter pictured above and maintained by the AMC from the early 1900s until 1961, or so, used to sit a little to the right of the right of this photo overlooking the pond. In the foreground you can see muck, mud that has been churned up by moose and other critters, and lily pads. The march of the mud began at the southern end of the pond (see below) and will probably continue until, decades from now, the pond is filled in.
