The day was sunny and warm (mid to high 40’s).
After the initial climb, it was mostly a ridge walk. We passed by signage for the “George A Harmon Woodlot” and “Deer Run,” both part of the Suffield Land Conservancy.
There was also a random green post which appeared to have the latitude and longitudinal coordinates.
Interesting, it seemed that in some of the higher areas, the snow had melted more rapidly. We theorized this was because of the rocky slabs.
At the first lookout, we could see the Heublein Tower in the distance.
We also could see a small storm closing in from the right.
With it came strong gusts of wind, a 10 degree drop in temperature, and some light rain. The trail began another climb as we battled the wind. An odd rock formation was near the trail.
Once we reached the next plateau, a sign let us know we were entering the property of the Bloomfield Fish and Game Club and we might be shot.
We passed by another look out. The wind made it bitterly cold (low 20’s) though it meant the storm moved overhead very quickly.
