Heading up to the Great Hill summit

It was a pretty crummy day for hiking, but some blokes wanted me to show them where Great Hill was, so that was what I did.

This was my first hike out since the quasi-knee-agony on Chocorua just about a week earlier - due to rest and a short hike, it seemed alright.

All of the snow was gone and the leaves were finally out - a big difference since I last summitted this small hill a month earlier.
