Starting in the evening at Max Patch can be unpredictable.
The clouds rolls in. The clouds roll out.
The sun starts to set then fades away behind these crazy clouds.
Once we reached the top (a short but very steep climb) of the bald , we set up a picnic. This picnic was celebratory. We're in the works of buying our very first home and just passed an important step.
So, as we continue our personal Summer Hiking Challenge, it was clear that this picnic would be at our favorite spot. It is about a 1-2 hour drive to Max Patch (depending on the route, weather and traffic).
Around 7:30pm, the sun was definitely gone. The clouds had overtaken, in fact, I think we were just sitting inside of a cloud.
We enjoyed the finale of the evening and packed up as a few other hikers walked by.
Another beautiful evening in WNC. It's fun to break out of habits (early morning hikes predominately) for something different.
Where to next...
