The clouds were beautiful on this day. I was listening to Across the Universe by the Beatles and I saw these small clouds above the mountains creeping. You'll have to enlarge it to really see them, but they were gorgeous.

While this is the first step, there's probably 100 feet that you go up before this. Nevertheless, it's the beginning of a 1750 foot journey to the top of Jack's Mountain.

Double orange doesn't mean "it's the trail - no! it's really the trail!!"
