Incredible Adirondak Adventure

Due to the rest my shoulder requires, and the subsequent inability for me to complete the 5-hour training paddle Jon and I had planned for the weekend, we went to plan B: Hike the Adirondacks.

I brought my good friend Justin along with us. The three of us hiked 6 hours on both Saturday and Sunday, including Phelps Mountain, which was [surprisingly] my first High Peak. The Adirondack Mountains are as breathtaking as always.

Washing my face with some ice-cold creek water

It was so cold it hurt. This water was snow, like, yesterday. In fact as we climbed up to Indian Falls there was still a fair amount of snow on the ground.

Mmmm, I want to take it home with me... or better yet, just stay forever.

This is the view from Jon's LIVING ROOM WINDOW. Mt. VanHoevenburg and the bobsled run! It's incredible!
