About Today’s Photo:
Yesterday’s bluebird conditions required something special. Since the lifts aren’t running yet at Mad River Glen, I skinned to the top of the Double Chair where the clear air offered a fine view of Mt. Washington and the Presidential Range over in New Hampshire. Well worth the climb. The skiing was nice too!
