Default Thin Snow on Hump Mt

Enjoyed a bright sunny hike up the Appalachian Trail to Hump Mt recently. It's about 6+ miles from where the AT crosses Highway 19E to the top of the Hump. Partway up is Doll Flats, with interesting rocks, fine old twisted Birches, and grassy balds.

Snow along the trail was drifted to 12-14 inches.

But higher up, the strong winds had swept away most of the snow.

Sometimes there are cattle grazing near Hump, but this time there was just the fence.

You can see Hump well before you get to the top.

It was too windy on top to get a good photo of the amazing 360 view (almost blew me & my tripod over!), but still some good views on the way up & back.

Hike back was almost all downhill, quick & uneventful. Hope you enjoyed these breezy glimpses, and that you'll share your comments & critique.
