The trail near the Great Hill summit

Between having a sore knee and crap weather, it had been awhile since I had been hiking. Thus, out of randomness, I went from 7-7-7 (Waumbek) to Friday the 13th (Great Hill).

Being on lunch break, I decided to do jog it. As a result, I was able to cut my normal time for this peak significantly. The summit views were great as usual.
