thank you for allowing me to join the adk46er community here...it's appreciated.

i was born and raised in lake george...the southern most edge of the adirondack park. so, i grew up hiking/climbing tongue mountain, prospect, etc. which are "hills" compared to the high peaks. still, i love the southern region of the adirondacks...it is breathtaking!

currently, i am living in the northern adirondacks, and i have begun my quest to climb all 46 high peaks. however, i find it important to not only focus on the highest (since so many people climb these peaks)...i also trek in the mckenzie wilderness, as well as other smaller mountains like st. regis, ampersand, lyon mtn, debar, etc. i recommend picking up the book "day hikes for all seasons" by bruce wadsworth (it's offered through the adk mtn club website). this book has a bunch of quickie hikes, some of which are high peaks, and others which are a little more secluded, but just as fun.

15 high peaks so far: seward, colden(winter), phelps(winter), whiteface(2x winter&summer), algonquin, iroquois, skylight, gray, redfield, marcy, haystack, basin, saddleback, cascade, & porter.


i didn't get to climb as many peaks last year...work kept me very busy. this year i'm definitely planning on getting out on the trails more often. i tend to go solo on most of my hikes, which keeps my plans almost spontaneous...but i'm eager to meet some young hikers to have group hikes with.

Last night the son of one of our old hiking firends passed away. Jeremy White was 19 yeasr old and died(we beleive) of a Meth overdose. If you would kindly remember his mom Nina and sister Courtney in your thoughs and prayers it would be greatly appreciated.

It always makes me sad to see the old Albany chapter group get smaller and smaller, and Jer will be missed for sure.

Hello All,

I was born and raised in the foothills of the Adirondacks and began hiking them in Junior High. So, far I've hiked Marcy, Alqonquin, Giant (a couple times), Lower Wolfjaw, and Phelps, and probably more that I have forgotten.

I started with the highest figuring as I got older I wouldn't be able to take the big ones on!

I'd like to do Haystack next.

--Ben

Anyone done any hiking as of late? Work weekend is coming up and I am hoping that perhaps I can make it up at least Mt. Jo. Anyone else going to be at work weekend?

Hiked Wright, Algonquin and Iroquois on Sunday. A little over 12 miles in 9 hours. We hiked in from The Lodge and Summited Wright first. We checked out the airplane crash and hung out for a bit, and then headed over to Algonquin and took our lunch there. After a nice short lunch we continued on to Iroquois where we decided to bushwack our way of the other side of the mtn. We thought perhaps we would summit Mt Marshall as well, but by the time we made it off the bushwack, I was much to sore to even think about it, so we hiked out to the Indian Pass Trail and then headed back to the lodge. All in all it was a pretty good day, with 3 more summits to add to my list. 37 to go. lol.

So Street and Nye were treacherous. I never want to see those two hellish peaks again. Ok so maybe in the winter, once more, but thats it after that

Street and Nye on Monday. Anyone here wish to join?

I know its probably hard for some of you, especially in GA, but those of you who are local, (rochester isnt to bad of a hike) we are going to be hiking almost every monday this summer (as well as many an overnighter), so if you want to get out there, your more than welcome to come with.

I joined a couple days ago, but haven't had a chance to post an intro yet.

I was born and raised in Rochester, and spent many summers in the Adirondacks growing up. I still get up there as much as I can, but it's somewhat harder to work out now that I live in Georgia ( I'm moving to North Carolina in a month).

I'm exactly halfway to becoming a 46er - 23 done, 23 to go. My favorite high peak is also my first - Cascade. Haystack also ranks very high on my list. I'm saving Marcy for last...I plan on doing that in the off-season so as to avoid the masses (I've heard the summit gets *very* crowded during the summer). Hopefully I will be able to spend some time up there in the next few years so I can finish what I started :)

Thank you for letting me join! ^_^

I'm 21 years old and live in Upstate New York. Every summer I spent time in the Adirondacks when I was growing up. I love those mountains, I always feel at home there. So it was only right for me to attend a college in the Adirondacks. ^_^

I currently only have 7 of the 46 under my belt. Though I'm planning on doing more about that, this fall while I'm a college.

I've had some great experiences in the High Peaks and would love to hear from others. Sharing stories and pictures of adventures are always fun!

Thanks and Hello! ^_^ Happy Trails!
