Skywatch Friday, Season 5, Episode 21


at the summit of Mt Equinox in Sunderland, Vermont

Mt Equinox is one of the highest mountains in southern Vermont.   At an elevation of 3,848 feet , it is the Highest peak in the Taconic Mountain range.

The Green Mountains, The Valley of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire may be seen to the east.
Adirondack Mountains of New York provide the backdrop to the west, and the Taconic and Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts to the south.    Guard rails have been installed almost the entire length of the drive making it one of the safest, best engineered, well constructed toll roads in the country.   There are many vistas and areas for picniking  along the 5.2 mile drive, which has a vertical gain of 3,248 feet to the summit.

I’m participating in Skywatch Friday photo meme.   Please share your photos of the sky from where you live or where you’ve traveled.

    YOur post really hit home tonight. This past August my husband hiked the Long Trail through the Green Mountains. This photo reminds me of some of the ones he sent back to me. This is one gorgeous part of the world, and one of these days I am going to join Buddy on a trip up to Burlington. I posted lots and lots of the photos he sent back on the blog, and I was amazed at how many of my photo taking friends were. The highest Buddy reached was about 4700 feet…that is way, way too high for me. Thanks for a lovely photo and post. genie
