Road to High Ledge

After doing 3 short to moderate hikes, I still had some time left to kill and decided to go to the High Ledges to see the sunset. On the drive up, I could see Mt. Monadnock in amazing detail, so I was certainly optimistic on the sunset possibilities. I was let down, however, to discover the clouds had moved in to the west. Nonetheless, I sat on the ledge for awhile and was able to get some work done, so everything wasn't lost.
