About Today’s Photo:
Robin & I hiked up Mt. Mansfield yesterday. We took the Laura Cowles Trail up (not for the faint of heart as it’s a bit of a relentlessly steep scramble—quite wet as well!) The Chin was windy and socked in when we arrived. Descending by the Sunset Ridge Trail, we walked into the sunshine and the stunning view to the west. This shot is looking southwesterly down the spine of the Manfield summit ridge. Camel’s Hump is visible a bit right of the stone cairn, and Lake Champlain can be seen on the right.
