Sunrise on the trail
Having not had the time to hike due to an increased work schedule, I decided to get up early and hike in the dark with the intent of seeing the sunrise. Though not hitting it exactly as intended, I did make it within 5 minutes of the beginning of the rise. On the way up I also came across a deer, who quickly took off upon me clapping it out.
Mt. Monandock was visible, as well as (at one point) either Mt. Snow or Haystack - the sun reflected off a chairlift terminal for a split second - making the location of the mountains known (though their shape was not visible). Mt. Greylock was not yet visible to the west.
