See sun set over Adirondacks atop Mount Philo State Park, Charlotte, Vermont, USA.
See the sun set over the Adirondacks from atop Mount Philo State Park (established 1924), in Charlotte, Vermont, USA. From atop Mount Philo (968 feet elevation), see Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains to the west and the Green Mountains to the east and south. Ascend via steep narrow car road (not suitable for RVs longer than 25 feet) or by trail. Mt. Philo is comprised of hard sedimentary rocks (Cambrian Monkton Quartzites) that are thrust over younger Ordovician rocks of the Stony Point Formation. Its Cambrian rocks were deposited 500 million years ago on a warm shallow marine shelf along the east coast of Laurentia (Proto North America) then tectonically uplifted. The panorama was stitched from 2 overlapping photos.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
