Exploring VT’s Rime-coated Mountains

January 10, 2010

Thanks to a long stretch of snowy weather, the upper elevations across the northern reaches of the northeast are in a truly beautiful state right now. The hardwood forest above 2500′ is especially attractive with its ever-deepening snowpack, and the birches and beeches decorated with some of the most impressive rime buildup we’ve ever seen. The conifers higher up are almost entirely cloaked in snow. Now is a great time to enjoy the higher mountains in their winter state.
