the best laid plans…

The leaves are changing in the north country. We have some color where I live but farther north the colors are at their peak. I decided to take Friday off and travel north to climb Bald Mountain in the Adirondacks. Bald Mountain is just north of Old Forge and has a great view of the Fulton Chain Lakes. I also checked and the sun would rise right over First Lake in Old Forge so I made sure to get there early to catch the blue hour and then the sunrise.

Well, at least that was the plan. I should have done more homework. Or maybe verify the forecast before I left the house at 5am for the hour drive north. I arrived in Old Forge to see the town shrouded in fog. My sunrise was a washout, but I hoped it would burn off quickly. It didn’t. I waited until 8:30am and hiked up to the top of the mountain with the hope it would dissipate. It didn’t.

I didn’t see clearing skies until I was 20 minutes south of Old Forge on my way home…

Here is my sunrise.
