Skookumchuck Brook


I thought about not naming this location because backcountry skiers usually like to keep their “stashes” secret. But to be honest, the skiing in this drainage isn’t that great; you would need a huge snow year to really cover the rocks and ice. Nevertheless, it’s still a fun place to explore. Taken in March of 2005, the photo is of Ryman McLane telemark skiing Skookumchuck Brook on Mount Lafayette in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire.

Photo Details: Nikon D2H w/ 10.5mm fisheye lens, exposure of 1/1000s at f/8 and 200 ISO. On a side note, the Spring of 2005 is when I sold my last film camera and started shooting digital exclusively.
