Top of Bolton Valley

  A phone call early Tuesday morning woke me up so I decided to go to the mountain early.  It was one of those days after a storm where there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  I got up to the lift around 8:30, strapped on my board and hopped on the quad.  It was the holiday season but there was hardly anyone up there yet.    At the top it was -4 degrees and windy... COLD!

  There is an old wooden fire tower at the top of the mountain that is a short hike from the quad.  I have been up there plenty of times late in the afternoon, but this was the first time I went in the morning to catch that early light.  It was gorgeous!  It is a beautiful view from up there.  You can see Stowe to the North, Waterbury Reservoir tothe east, all of Lake Champlain to the west and Camel's Hump to the south.  I didn't stay all that long because of the cold and gusty winds and I wanted to get some riding in before the crowds got there.  Here are some photos I took up there.
