Colvin Mountain and Blake Peak (ADK 18/46 and ADK 19/46) (9/28/19, 7:22:59AM)
Hit the trail around 7:30 AM. Got the last parking spot at the Roaring Brook lot. Was overcast, a bit dark and slightly humid. Took awhile to shake the rust off. Gill Brook Trail was nice and soft. Lots of leaves starting to change and many on the ground. Took Elk Pass up Colvin. Sun came up for Colvin Summit. Nice views. Lots of people on top. Initial ridge walk to Blake was nice - started raining. Going down the back side of Colvin was rough - lots of mud, steepness and open rocks. Climb up Colvin seemed to take longer than the mileage would suggest. Top was wooded, didn’t hang out too long. Climbed back up Colvin and found a great summit spot to chill - wind was whipping but view was great. Climb back down was a bit of a slog as was the walk out on Lake Road. Was back at car by 6:30 PM.
