Looking up the trail to Great Hill
Wanting to get some exercise before the snowstorm, I decided to head out in the dark and ascend Great Hill for the sunrise.
The first part of the ascent was packed by a snowmobile, while the second part was basically about 3" of powder. While I started well before the sunrise, the colors were already on display by the time I had reached the tower, thanks to a decent cloud cover.
Not a bad, short sunset hike!
