Looking down the Black Cap Trail
Route: Black Cap Trail
Upon finishing a hike to Mt. Parker, I could see a clearing trend to the south and west. Thus, I decided to head up to Black Cap for a brief sunset hike.
While the trail was a bit from recent rain, the ledges were fortunately fairly dry. After checking out the eastern viewpoint (which seems to be more grown in than I remember it), I went back to the ledges along the trail to get ready for the sunset. Unfortunately, a dark layer of clouds blew in from the Presidentials, covering most of the color. Can't win them all!
