On July 14th I went with a group on a hike to the summit of Mt. Hunger in central Vermont. It was warm with quite a bit of cloud cover when we started up the trail. The trail to the top was only two miles but it was really steep. It was a very challenging hike.
The top of Mt. Hunger is above the tree line proving a great view for hikers.
Due to the hazy conditions I did not get the distance shots that I was hoping for. However, I did get some pretty good shots towards Waterbury Center and Stowe. I did a succession of shots of Waterbury Reservoir and Waterbury Center getting closer each time.
Adding some black to the photos when processing in Lightroom or Photoshop helps to reduce the impact of the hazy conditions.
As I had hoped, I could see the ski trails at Stowe. The haze really made this shot difficult.
This is the view west towards Stowe.
I would like to go on another hike this season for more photographs!
