A "Twilight Hike" - an Alpine Club sponsored trip up Jay Mountain, with the express intent to arrive on the summit ridgeline during and after sunset, with the intent to experience all the scenic beauty that has to offer.

We left shortly after 3pm, angling to be on the open part of Jay's ridgeline before sunset. We cut it close, but after 70 or so minutes of brisk uphill hiking, we emerged onto the first open areas with only minutes to spare. The real show came afterwards, thoguh, when a brilliant progression of colores played across the underside of the clouds above us. Truly excellent and well worth it, even though we had to endure a cold, strong wind. With growing darkness and an unpleasant wind, we turned around just before Grassy Notch, and did not proceed all the way to the summit.
