Looking down the Bald Knob Trail
Route: Bald Knob Trail
Though it was a bit cloudy outside, the weather looked good enough for me to do a quick hike before the Sox game.
I was a bit surprised as I pulled up to the trailhead - there were almost half a dozen cars parked along the road - a very busy day for Bald Knob! The bottom of the trail featured excellent fall colors. From there to near the top, however, the colors were decent, but not close to peak.
At the top, however, there was plenty of peak color to be seen - looking at the mountainside, that is. The flats below still had plenty of greens. Not wanting to miss much of the game, I didn't loiter for long at the summit.
Unfortunately, the game didn't turn out favorably for the Red Sox.
