Fall in the Alpine Zone

Fall colors on the Alpine Garden Trail, September 24, 2009.

Alpine vegetation during Fall on the Alpine Garden Trail. Mount Washington, New Hampshire.

After staring at the computer for most of the morning yesterday I had to get outside for some exercise. The weather looked like it would hold on Mount Washington for the afternoon; so my route looked like this: Pinkham Notch (2pm)>Tuckerman Ravine Trail>Huntington Ravine Trail>Henderson Ridge (5.4)>Nelson Crag Trail>Alpine Garden Trail>Lion Head Trail>Tuckerman Ravine Trail>Pinkham Notch (5:40pm). I remembered the iPod Shuffle, but forgot a headlamp.

Photo Details: Panasonic Lumix LX3 (point and shoot). Exposure was 1/640s at f/4 and 400 ISO.
