About Today’s Photo:
I skied up onto the Lion’s Ridge loop of the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Center yesterday morning. At about 2000′ and in a wind protected pocket, the trail held some lovely rime formations on the windward side of the trees. This vine was festooned with especially delicate crystals.
