It is pretty common to see deer out here grazing, living free & wild. This area is so beautiful and never ceases to leave me in a state of awe through its ever-changing beauty. I highly recommend everyone take at least one day trip out here to see what I am talking about! Although beautiful all year long, my favorite times to visit are winter-spring.
Doane Pond, as well as Doane Valley, were named after George Doane, one of the mountain's earliest pioneers. He, along with Nate Harrison, is said to be one of the most colorful personalities on the mountain and known for being the the "hairiest person ever known in these parts."
