52 With-A-View: Mount Kearsarge, October 11 2016

Looking for a local mountain with possible foliage views, I decided to hike Mount Kearsarge. I got a later start than expected, which made for some beautiful views from the summit with the setting sun, but I was also slower than expected due to descending in the dark. I hope to head back again to get some pictures of the Winslow trail; it may be a good candidate for a snowshoeing trip once we get some snow.
