Dunnfield Trail, Sunfish Pond, & Appalachian Trail

Today, I finished my work day from the trailhead so as soon as I was done I could hit the trail and maximize daylight. The timing worked great, since I emerged at the end just before a headlamp was needed.

The highlight today was running into the biggest black bear I’ve ever seen. Here he is, staring me down on his hind legs. He stood as tall as me, and was about 30-40 yards off the trail.
