Camel’s Hump 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. This 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 to 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′.

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!

It was a fine morning to get out on fresh fallen snow. As I made it to the top of Crow Hill (where I’ve never been before), the sun came out and offered up this stunning view of Camel’s Hump and the shoulder of Bald Hill.

My ski buddy, Tom, takes in the view south and west of the Huntington River Valley from atop Bald Hill. A gorgeous morning for a bit of turn-earning.
