The Signal Ridge Trail
Route: Signal Ridge Trail
With beautiful, crisp early-fall-esque day, I had to sample the views from Mt. Carrigain.
The water crossings were fortunately pretty easily done. As I neared Signal Ridge, I could hear the winds gusting up high. Reaching the summit tower, I had to put on a few layers as well as gloves. While it wasn't freezing, the temperatures were in the 40s, not including the windchill.
The views from the tower were tremendous - Mt. Monadnock was fairly easily seen, making it at least a 91-mile view day.
After having a quick bite to eat on Signal Ridge, I put on my headlamp and headed out for a long walk in the dark.
