Mt. Hunger Hike in Waterbury, VT

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.

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.

I would like to go on another hike this season for more photographs!
