Ascent Trip Report

January something, not sure exactly what day, we hiked North Mountain just after sunset. We found out that the road that most people take to the top was under construction and so everyone had shifted over to the trail which normally isn't heavily used. The condition of the trail was bad and it had taken a beating due to the influx of people. It looked washed out or vulnerable in many places. At the top we had a great view of the White Tanks glowing with the sunset behind them. We never had to turn on our lights on the way down due to the city glow.
