Not all early mornings yield a colorful twilight. On this day the sky was mostly cloudy and although there was a hint of blue sky filtering through the clouds, much of the light was flat so monochrome seemed the way to go.
The Holyoke Mountain Range seen from The Honey Pot in Hadley, MA.
The Holyoke Range is relatively unique as it runs east to west and is one of the few with that alignment in the world. Two large ranges that follow that path are the Uintas in Utah and the Transverse in California. Ours is small by comparison but very popular for hiking. The rounded tops were ground that way by the “recent” Laurentide Ice Sheet about 25,000 years ago.
