Camels Hump- two views

Camels Hump, one of the well known Green Mountain peaks is usually seen from the Lake Champlain side. It is easily seen traveling up Rte 7 from Charlotte and Shelburne. Here is a view taken from Ferrisburgh, out by Hawkins Slough.
Of interest is the location of Camels Hump. If one goes to the Burlington Airport and looks east, the mountain juts up just off the flight path. In 1944 a B-24 Army bomber crashed into the mountain. All that is left now is the wing. (Photos at this link)

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
