Write Up:
There was comfort in the in-between of seasons--this day wasn't quite Summer, and it wasn't fall either. Just filled with sunshine, a slight breeze and a cloudless sky.

We woke up and arrived at the trailhead pretty early. The parking lot at I-40 and I-70 is very popular, as it is only a few easy miles from the Annapolis Rocks overlook. After quick introductions, we began the short ascent to Annapolis Rocks. On the overlook we figured out which way we were looking and tried to figure which road was way ahead of us.

Soon after Annapolis Rocks, we proceeded another mile north to Black Rock Cliffs. We saw someone on the far set of Cliffs and it turned out to be Haunghe, a member of our group. After a quick lunch, the short walk back to the cars followed. It turns out that if you wave to cars on the I-70 footbridge, they may wave back.

Thanks to everyone for coming out and I hope you had a good time!
