Black Cap

Yesterday's clear views from the summit of Crawford were but a memory today as the warmest temperatures of the season brought haze to the Mount Washington Valley. We climbed Black Cap, now that Hurricane Mountain Road is open, and had an easy enough go of the 2.5 mile hike to the summit and back. We also had the summit to ourselves; I don't think many people realize the road is open. However, we didn't stay too long.

As I said, it was hot and hazy and we were both a bit tuckered from yesterday's adventure. I took a few photos of Agiocochook through the midday haze and we headed down and then back home for lunch.
