This is the sky early Monday morning at the bottom of Stratton Mountain in Vermont. At the top, it was about -30°F – frigid, frost-bite weather.
Here you can see some of the Stratton Mountain condos.
In the top photo, do you see the large, black bird swooping by? The bird (is it a hawk?) swooped and swooped all around, but I only managed to capture him in that one photo before he flew away. I wonder why this bird chose to stay in cold Vermont?
