ADK: What again? Yes, definitely.

We disappeared up North for a week. We rented a cabin on Horseshoe Pond. It was excellent. We climbed Ampersand Mountain which Willy the hound and I camped on 30 years back. We paddled the pond and big chunks of the Saranac River including a passage through the locks. Played Catan a couple evenings, finished the 5th Extinction, continued Hamilton, knocked off The Gunslinger, roasted some corn, just chilled. Good for soul.

Good for soul.

I like that. I'm taking the scouts hiking and camping next weekend. It will be fun, but not quite the same as a week with family.

I wish I could go with you. I was an Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow.

But a nice change just the same. Enjoy.

That's no small accomplishment.

I was neither.

That's true but look what happened after that.

Saddleback and Basin

Pete and I hiked in along John's Brooke and set up camp Friday afternoon. We got up Saturday and did a 10 mile loop which included Saddleback and Basin. We descended the pictured face of Saddleback which was a bugger. If I do it again, I'd rather climb up that thing. Look at the tiny people! Anyway the picture is from Basin which is #9 in elevation of the ADK Mountains. A nice weekend...

Looks like descending would be easy except for a couple sudden stops.

Yeah, it's not so much the falling as the stopping falling...

Wow. That looks like some serious terrain.

You and Pete must be in very good shape. Ten miles of THAT is like a marathon of flat land. Or more.

Just follow the yellow stripe trail... I think coming down would be twice as bad.
