Looking up the Red Hill Trail

Route: Red Hill Trail

Today's sunset hike was Red Hill. As I ascended up the Red Hill Trail, I could see a thick cloud bank was overtaking the setting sun.

As I arrived on the summit, I could see that the sunset wouldn't be that great. Nonetheless, it was still a nice display from the firetower - the rays illuminated the edges of the clouds. The wind whipping up high on the fire tower made things rather cold! Nonetheless, there was no snow or ice on the summit.
