The green in the background represents the dense stands of hemlock along Mt. Skinner's summit ridge and that sweep down across its north face.
It was in the low 30s all day keeping with the mild fall we've been having, but below freezing night-time temperatures have finally put frost in the ground and I hope the same is true for the White Mountains. It would be great to have at least a couple of inches of hard frost before the deeper snow arrives.
At any rate, I just wanted to share this lovely winter sunlight. It's reminiscent of the light I was hiking in last Saturday on Kinsman Ridge.
