About Today’s Photo:
I skied up to the higher elevations of the Camel’s Hump Ski Center yesterday morning. I found myself at the foot of Bert’s Crown, a rocky knob that rises up to the west of the Lion’s Ridge area. Having never climbed to the top of the Crown, I took advantage of the firm snowpack to scramble my way up. I was not disappointed with the view! The Hump, Crow Hill, and Bald Hill are laid out quite nicely. The Crown was named for Bert White whom some of you might remember for his kind, folksy manner and ubiquitous yellow hard hat.
