Woke up too early on my day off, so Vespi and I ventured up Skye Peak to check out the water flow and an uphill view of the Roaring Brook Umbrella Bar.

Dragged my dad and his dog out of bed at five o'clock in the morning to hike through the dark up to the summit of Killington
So we strapped on our headlamps and headed up in the pitch black before even the lifties were out.
Just my, dad, me, two dogs...and an army of snowmakers :)
I love you dad, but you do know how to make a headlamp looks absolutely rediculous.
By the time we arrived at the summit around 7am, the lifties were just getting dropped off at the snowmobiles after their truck ride up the workroad.
They were impressed (and surprised) that we had walked all the way up ... and in the dark.
Of course, there was no visible sunrise to speak of...but we did get to The Light right at the time that there was light. It made me giggle.
Surprisingly, there was no need for stabilizers or crampons anywhere - no visible frozen water - but my dad did say he would have liked snowshoes for the short section of Great Northern we had to walk.
They started blowing snow on Upper Downdraft this morning!
most frustrating part of the morning?
Having to walk DOWN the Stairway to Heaven.
And then, all the way back down...
