“My Office Today” Chocorua Mountain and Lake, White Mountain National Forest, Albany, NH, USA
A dawn view of Chocorua Mountain Peak as seen from Chocorua Lake in the beautiful What Mountain National Forest, in Albany, New Hampshire and is the eastern most peak of the Sandwhich Mountain Range in the White Mountain National Forest. Mount Chocorua has an elevation of 3,490 fe (1,064 m) and is a favorite destination for hikers. The summit is bare rock and the hikes are rather challenging. The 360 degree view at the summit is worth the effort!
Taking advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures all over New England this weekend, I left my home at 3am with all my gear and met up with fellow photographer Kim Keyes to spend a good three hours shooting stars, pre-dawn and sunrise shots of the lake and mountain. It was rather unsettling to hear the thunderous cracking sounds in the dark as the ice melted in the January thaw.
Looks like we got there just in time as snow and plummeting temperatures return to New Hampshire tomorrow!
