This view often greets us in the morning. The maple trees on Sugar Mountain are frosted in a light coating of ice. This contrasts with the darker gray and brown of the unfrosted trees at the lower altitudes. In this photo it is particularly striking by being set against the rich blue of the morning sky. By mid-afternoon the frosting usually sublimates off the tree branches.
