Looking down the Mt. Roberts Trail
Route: Mt. Roberts Trail
With nice weather rolling in during the day, I headed down to Mt. Roberts after a long day at work for a quick hike.
For the first time in the three years I've hiked Mt. Roberts, there were horses in the pasture - neat!
With limited daylight, I jogged the flats. Reaching the ledges, the scenery slowed my progress a bit - and ripe blueberries slowed it even more.
Eventually reaching the summit via the grassy upper carriage road, I found one tick - not bad considering all of the long grass. From the summit, I had decent views to the north, though Mt. Washington was obscured by clouds.
The return trip was slowed once again by blueberries. Between those, the good views, blue sky, and relative brisk air, it was nice to get out!
