Looking up the trail to Great Hill
After hiking Bayle Mountain, I couldn't help but notice puffy clouds to the north. Hoping some would also be to the west, I decided to head up to Great Hill for the sunset.
With the sun quickly approaching the horizon, I tried to make decent time up the trail to the summit. Arriving at the tower just in time, I was able to watch the entire sunset. Though colorful, there weren't too many clouds to the west, thus making a mediocre (but still nice) display.
Though I didn't see much in way of wildlife during the hike and sunset, I was surprised to see a moose crossing the road on my way back - by the looks of it, s/he must have been pretty close to the trail junction when I came through.
