Camel's Hump

The mountain and metamorphic rock of Camel's Hump illustrate the complex, anticlinal deformation that formed the Green Mountains, and support the second largest extent of alpine-tundra in Vermont. Altitude-related zonation of biota is demonstrated by the transition from treeless ridge, to alpine-heath vegetation, to boreal fir, red spruce-birch and hardwood forests.
