The last traces of daylight in the distance
Just about a month after hiking Massaemett on a 70 degree day, I ascended it in upper teen temperatures. After getting a late start on the trail, I witnessed much of the sunset on my way up. Nonetheless, upon reaching the top of the tower, there were still some colours to be seen.
While there were some tracks up the snow covered trail, it appeared that I had been one of only a handful of people who had made the climb since the Friday night snowfall.
On the whole, the trail was in pretty good shape - some hidden ice patches in the middle section, but mostly just snow covered ground.

The very last bit of the sunset
Directions to trailhead: Climbing a hill East on Route 2 after passing the 112 North exit, look for a small paved driveway on the left as the road levels out. The trail starts at the yellow gate.
