About Today’s Photo:
I took this view of Camel’s Hump from Shaker Mountain Road yesterday late morning. There was a good layer of snow on the summit (about 6″ from various reports). “Stick Season” is beginning its decent into the valleys as Bald Hill (on the left of the summit) is down to bare trees already.
