Route: Black Cap Trail, Black Cap Connector
In town on a hot evening, I headed up Hurricane Mountain Road to do a quick jog up to Black Cap.
Heading up the Black Cap Connector, the early sunset rays were hitting the trees, making for great colors. After reaching the highpoint, I returned to the western viewpoint just in time for the sunset.
After watching the sunset, I had just enough light remaining to comfortably jog back to the trailhead before dark.
