Sparks

There isn't any ice to speak of in the northeast right now. I took a ride up to Smuggler's Notch last weekend with a few good friends. Our findings were pretty grim - unfrozen ground, delaminated ice and very dry looking climbs. If this is any indication it's not going to be a banner season in the northeast. Despite the rainy October and tropical storm deluges of August and September things seem dry.

Here are a few shots from my Smuggler's Notch trip last weekend.
