The view from the summit, just past the 5k point. Stratton Mountain is in the distance. You've got one kilometer of downhill after this point.

Rime ice on the trees at the summit. Gorgeous views at this point in the other direction of Bennington, the Taconic Mountains and New York State.

The final single track section at 4.8 miles. It's flat and beautiful and once you finish it, it's almost all downhill to the finish.
