First Hike of a 6 Day Camping Trip to the White Mountains. Got in too late the day before to do anything but find a campsite and set up, so started hiking the next day. Had to keep the Hikes short due to the weather, which was pretty unsettled most of the stay. More on that when I do a Car Camping triplog.

Checked out the town of Greer a bit and then hit the Trail here. Tried to go clockwise at first through the loop, but couldn't find the trail quick enough at a road crossing, so went CCW instead. A walk through a Forest, encountered some Springs and walked around a small hill. Nice little exercise to get things moving after a long week. The clouds were already threatening to storm at 10:00 A.M. which I thought was unusual, but that would be the trend most of the week. I looked up another optionally short jaunt in Greer and headed there to get a bit in after finishing up this one.

It's hit or miss in the White Mountains due to late rains. Not a banner year for sure. Very dry and Wildflowers that ARE currently blooming look stressed, thin and weak. Maybe in a couple of weeks if the Rains of this week continue.
