Looking down the Ledges Trail
Route: Ledges Trail
Though it was raining down south, it was a fairly dry day further north.
Starting at the trailhead, I jogged for about three quarters of a mile, switching over to a walking pace when the going got rough and the heat rougher. Though cloudy, the views from the ledges were quite nice. The air had a fall scent to it.
Reaching the summit, the views were strong - to the northwest, it was still a sunny day. After taking some time on the breezy summit, I headed back down, jogging again below the ledges.
