’twas a good day for a hike relatively close to home. Sunny and warm, 55 degrees! Not too shabby for November.

The hike follows a snowmobile trail for a bit before branching off on a foot trail to the cliffs

in true Adirondack style, the trail goes straight up. This picture doesn’t really show how steep the trail is.
