In need of some exercise, I headed over to the Castle in the Clouds area for a jog up to Bald Knob.
The trail was dry all the way to the top, including the normally muddy areas. Along the way, I observed some new plastic trail markers on all three trails.
Reaching the summit, the views were fairly strong in all directions. While it was tempting to linger awhile, I wanted to make it down prior to sunset.
