Looking down the Red Hill Trail

Route: Red Hill Trail

Wanting to avoid mud and snow again, I decided to hike Red Hill after work. What a difference from two weeks ago! There was basically no snow or mud to be found anywhere!

It was a clear day again, temperatures in the 60s. Unlike the day before, the haze was held back a bit, allowing for blue sky into the late afternoon.

Upon arriving at the summit, I was welcomed into the cab by the ranger - and was the first person this year to sign the log book. The ranger was very friendly and (obviously) knew the surrounding topography quite well. According to him, Winnipesaukee had finally completely thawed the day before.
