Kinsman Ridge Trail near the Cannon Mountain summit
With a crisp, clear day, I headed up to Cannon Mountain for a late afternoon hike. Though the ascent up the nasty Kinsman Ridge Trail was somewhat crowded, I had the summit and the descent to myself. Despite some dry weather, the trail had some wet slabs as well as typical mud pits.
The views from the summit tower were tremendous, as late day sun cast some very interesting shadows on the Osceolas and Scar Ridge.
