Looking up the Whiteface Trail
Route: Piper Whiteface Trail, Whiteface Trail, (Whiteface Mountain summit), Whiteface Trail, Piper Whiteface Trail
With the sunsets getting earlier and earlier, I headed over to Whiteface for a short jog. Incoming winter was apparent on the trail, as puddles were iced over.
Reaching the summit, there was a decent display setting up. The low fall sun angle helped enhance the set, casting nice light on adjacent peaks (while a near-full moon climbed above the treetops).
After the display, I jogged back, making it to the parking area just before otherwise needing a headlamp.
