After our climb of Mt. Washington, we headed to the western edge of Massachusetts for Mt. Greylock. We were going to take the Appalachian Trail up to the summit instead of just driving up to it. Its located by some small town and it took a while just to figure out where the trail begins. We found a place to park on the side of the road and found the Appalachian trail markers. We headed into the woods…
The trail starts out fairly flat, then gets steeper.
Of course, there’s no rock climbing involved, but after climbing Mt. Washington we were already tired. We reached the top of the steep trail and decided we couldn’t push any further since night time was setting in and we weren’t prepared to camp out overnight. We took a break next to a cliff and my dad took my picture.
Many of the establishments around the area boasted of having 100 mile views. When you reach the tops of the mountains, you can see why.
We headed back down the easy way. Letting gravity do most of the work by running and jumping down the slope of the mountain. Even though I didn’t reach my goal this time, I know I’ll come back for it (probably by driving up it).
