Memorial Day Frost And Snow Covered High Peaks

DA021670

Early morning frost on the fields, with snow covered peaks above the green trees. Not the best weather for Memorial Day weekend – but it sure was pretty! This was captured with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 early on Monday morning, 5/27/13. I wanted to get out for some photos before the sun had a chance to start melting the snow capped summits. I went from there to Heart Lake and Mount Jo, and then photographed awhile along the Adirondak Loj Road again before heading back home mid-morning.
