Sunset Memories-Skywatch Friday


Mount Equinox sunset

Mount Equinox sunset

Driving up the winding roads of the  5.2 mile Skyline Drive is not for the faint-hearted but is worth the trip to the summit.   It begins  at the tollhouse on Historic Route 7 A at an elevation of 600 feet and with a vertical grain of 3,248 ft to the summit, Mount Equinox is 3,848 feet above sea level.    There are trails to hike of various levels along with spectacular views but be prepared for the almost ten degree drop in temperature, bring a jacket and gloves.   

To the East you can see the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Green Mountains, and the valley of Vermont.  To the west, are the view of the Adirondack mountains of New York.   To the south, a view of the Taconic and Berkshire mountains.  

The mountain is owned by the Catharsian monks who live  on  a private monastery on the mountain their entire lives.

    What an amazing sky. I like the layers of clouds and the layers of colors between those layers. 🙂 Too many layers, I know. 😀
