Seeing the chance of a nice sunset, I went for a quick jog up to Great Hill. Unfortunately, the peak colors occurred while I was about halfway up the trail. Nonetheless, I was able to get a nice display from the fire tower, just before some rain moved in.

I also observed some nice, new trail signs, making the maze of old roads a lot easier to navigate.
