Mountain Views | Adirondacks | New York
This photo really provides a good sense of what the topography is like in the Adirondack region of New York.
One activity that I love to do and which I was able to do more often is hike up mountains.
One of the most rewarding feelings is making the hard climb up a mountain and then being able to enjoy the beautiful scenery on the summit.
This is a photo from my first hike up to the summit of Mt. Marcy in the Adirondack region of NY.
One of the most interesting things about this hike was experiencing the way the climate changed as I ascended.
I knew intellectually that this would happen, and fortunately I was prepared for it. But there is nothing like the actual physical experience of hiking up a mountain in nice light summer clothing and then realizing at a very distinct point that now it is cold and blustery and I need a jacket now.
