It looks cold, and it was cold...

A couple of images from a short hike on the Banforth Ridge trail, which starts along the Winooski River and eventually reaches the summit of Camels Hump, the second highest peak in Vermont, and a peak that is still undeveloped. There was not much snow, but it was a cold clear winter day.



I learned that it was best to just leave the camera in 'P' mode (semi-automatic) rather than putz around with settings: Removing gloves was pretty painful... I think it was about 15 degrees farenheit.


This cold snap is an abberation, however, next week the forecast high temperatures are in the upper 30s... any precipitation will fall as rain. I think that this is fast becoming the new norm here.
