About Today’s Photo:
While out earning some turns yesterday at Mad River Glen, I had to pause briefly on my climb to get a shot of the waterfall along the Waterfall Trail. The icicles are just starting to build as they become quite built up and ornate later in the season. FYI, a ski pole makes for a handy monopod for longer exposures!
