Camel’s Hump

Camel’s Hump Black & White

Camel’s Hump in black & white

A friend challenged me to black & white photo thingy on the facebooks, so I obliged. Interestingly, this time of year (November…) it’s kind of hard to find much color in the world, so black and white landscapes work!

Yesterday’s bluebird conditions made for a lovely portrait of Camel’s Hump from the porch of the Stark’s Nest at the top of Mad River Glen’s Single Chair.

Fall foliage is at peak right now around Camel’s Hump.┬áThis view from Bald Hill takes in a broad expanse of the mountain’s western slope and ridgeline including Wind Gap on the right.

Bluebird day…

It was a fine morning┬áto climb the Hump today. Although there was very little snow in the woods even up at the ridge meadow, traction aids were a must as the trail is still pretty much ice covered above 2500′.

Going up the icy trail!

Bert’s Crown is a rocky knob above the Camel’s Hump Nordic center. I’d never climbed to the top of it before, so decided to give it a try this morning. It was a bit of a scramble, but I was rewarded by a stunning view!
