High and Dry.
You’ll find some of the most vibrant fall colors on the East Coast in northern Vermont, near the town of Stowe, but to get the best views, be prepared to climb.
Summit Mount Mansfield, say, and your reward is to look down on Smuggler's Notch State Park. With the afternoon light just so, you'll be left breathless by the splendor.
You aren't Shackleton, and, this isn't the Antarctic. But, with the proper gear, the viewing won't be dampened, as it were, by the drizzle. Slip your trusty field coat over your sweater.
Quality experiences call for quality accoutrements.
Luckily, you've played before.
Swedish Mountain Parka (No. 6723). Painstaking reproduction of an old-school field coat used by the Swedish military. Translated for modern mountaineering into this weather-defying parka. Italian cotton-nylon fabric is brushed to fortify this piece (and you) against the elements. Double storm flap with military-style buttons at center front. Felled seams. Adjustable cuffs. Interior drawcords at waist and hood, and scalloped three-button flaps on the waist pockets. Authentically vintage feel. Imported.
