Adirondack Forty-Sixers

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 :)

Heh, one time I stupidly said something to these two guys who threw their (empty) beer cans off the summit of Whiteface. They just laughed and threw more crap. I quickly realized that saying something was not going to make a dent in their idiotic ways. Sad to say, but I think Whiteface is sort of a lost cause.

Well they were drinking and they probably drove up the road. So they didn't have the whole experience of the mountain.

I climbed her from the slide! OMG! That was my own personal hell! But that is a different story!
