About Today’s Photo:

The Franconia Ridge trail is one of the iconic hikes in the northeast, rivalled in beauty perhaps only by the Presidential Range to the east. It is the second highest ridge in the northeast (the Presidentials being the tallest), and the Appalachian Trail traverses it. This view is from the summit of Mount Lafayette looking south towards Mt. Lincoln, Little Haystack Mtn, and Mt. Liberty. Franconia Notch (with the noisey I-93 running though it…) is to the west.

Panasonic GX8, Olympus 9-18mm lens @ 9mm, circular polarizing filter, ISO 800, f/18, 1/200″ exposure.
