Early morning look down the trail to Great Hill

I had planned on doing a larger hike on this day, but between a late Red Sox game and a last minute bad weather forecast, I decided to get up early and do a sunrise hike on Great Hill.

What a nice morning too - the forecasted clouds and chance of rain never came. The birds were busy while the sun slowly made its way up a bank of clouds to the east.

My next Great Hill assignment will be to see a sunset.
