Route: Black Mountain Trail

Trail was generally dry and in good shape. Wish more mountain trails in the Whites had footing like this. Excellent views as usual from the summit ledges. Not much to speak of in terms of foliage yet, but saw some colored leaves on the drive in.

Flagging for upcoming logging project is still up, but no signs of any logging yet.
