Looking down the Bald Knob Trail
Route: Bald Knob Trail
While my intention the previous day was to hike Bald Knob for the sunset, the amount of rain that morning persuaded me to give the water crossing another day to drop down. 24 dry hours later, I decided to give it a go.
Though not quite as warm as the previous day, it was still pretty comfortable. Rough and steep as always, the Bald Knob Trail fortunately didn't have any ice or snow on it. Reaching the summit, I saw potential for a decent sunset. While not as strong as some others this fall, it was nonetheless a decent display.
