So, this is the first leg of the big round-trip hike. Sunday morning about 6 am, it was super foggy and in the 30's. It warmed up fast and you can see in the first half of the pictures that the fog was hanging really low. I actually 'heard' the sunrise before I saw it- the sun was behind me, so as it poked through the fog, it caused the dew to melt off the leaves which sounded like rain. I turned around to see the sunrise. It's the first time I ever "heard" the sun come up.
Parking is a real bear for this hike. There is a legal spot on the west end of the 140 bridge. You can also park across 140 on Glen Falls, but crosing 140 - even, or perhaps especially - just before sunrise is suicide. I just pulled off the road right at the trailhead. Not completely clear if that's a legal spot. However, if you start at the south end, you have to park at least half a mile away on Ivy Mill. So, you really have to want to do this hike and allow a couple of hours, especially if you want to check ou tthe very cool side trails, but it's worth it.
