Route: Glencliff Trail, Moosilauke Carriage Road, (Mt. Moosilauke), Moosilauke Carriage Road, Glencliff Trail
Another nice day in the mountains for November standards - sunny skies, mild temperatures, and low winds.
Having previously been acclimated to cooler temperatures, I was dragging a bit as I worked my way up the Glencliff Trail. Trail conditions were quite good - dry with no ice or snow.
Reaching the summit, the views were a bit hazy as clouds were starting to move in. Nonetheless, the Presidentials were in the clear and easily seen. Due to the incoming clouds, the sunset was lackluster, especially in comparison to some of the great displays I had witnessed in previous days.
We switched on headlamps upon reaching the Glencliff junction and had a nice walk out.
