With thunderstorms threatening the area on a hot day, I decided to stay low and head up Peaked Mountain.

While I was able to jog much of the way up, the heat and a lack of conditioning resulted in walking the steeper portions up high. Reaching the summit, I had hazy, but decent, views of the Moats, Chocorua, Ossipees, et al.

After having some fresh blueberries, I headed back down. Fortunately, the bugs weren't as bad here as they had been on nearby Hurricane Mountain a week earlier.
