State:

Date:

Description:
The photo shows the Camel's Hump summit house with a four people in the doorway, two men, a boy and a woman. Look closely under the house and you can see slabs of metamorphic schist bedrock, the rock that makes up Camel's Hump. The surrounding area has been clear cut with only the stumps and three coniferous trees remaining. Note the large amount of soil erosion exposing boulders and tree roots as the once thick and permeable organic upper soil horizons have been lost. There is a forested slope in the distance. Skip Flanders writes on 2012-01-28: This summit House was on the summit of Camels's Hump which is located in the Town od Duxbury rather than Huntington.
