Taking the long way home

Morning haze

This is what the commute looked like around 0600 hours this morning. This is how most of my morning commutes are as of late. The weather here in western Massachusetts has been warm and hazy in the morning, and thunder storms in the afternoon. We got the rumble of thunder at work, but no rain. At the bottom of the trail they got a downpour that came and went. I decided to tempt fate, and try a new route home. It was well worth it, here’s the view close to the top:
