What is that big white building half way up the hill and, if they had to build there, why couldn't they make the building the color of traprock?

The view towards Hartford was nice and clear.

A great thing about spring hiking is all the daylight: I was able to hike until 7:30. When I started this blog, I had to be back to my car by 4:30! In winter, the combination of cold and approaching darkness keeps you on move. This day I was relaxed and lingering everywhere to enjoy the sights.
