Moss Ponds, Adirondacks, NY_RP543008.
Bushwacking the last bit up a small mountain that looked promising for a view, I was rewarded with an open area. However, I still had to circle around through some thick scrub to avoid leaving snowshoe tracks along the ledge. Incoming clouds seemed to pour out from Giant itself, as though from a volcano. The mountains seem to make their own weather, but on this December morning, the overcast would hold off for quite a while.
