One photo a day challenge: Day 168. Today we spent the day chasing waterfalls. We sought out waterfalls that were close the the road and had easy access. Our dog isn’t as mobile as she used to be. Brynn still loves to get out and explore. So we found ways to get her out doing what she loves. I bought a book detailing how to find a large number of waterfalls in… Read More
Overnight into this morning we experienced a crazy thunderstorm. Wind, rain, thunder, and lightning. Probably the worst storm we’ve experienced while camping. We stayed dry in the tent. But when we emerged everything in our campsite was soggy. Despite putting everything we left out under our canopy. So we spent the day away from our campsite. We went out exploring the Adirondack region. One place we stopped was Buttermilk Falls in Long… Read More
We arrived at our campsite out in the Adirondacks. We set up and set out to relax. We don’t really do the sit back and relax thing very well for long periods of time. We stayed at our campsite the entire day except when I walked down to take this photo.
My friends and I love to do hard things and have fun doing it. We are all runners of one variety or another and we like to run. Our running often leads us on adventures. We like our adventures best when we can go through it together. Those of us not running during a particular adventure can often be found supporting the others in the group who are running at that time…. Read More
Giant boulders that have been rend asunder in the Adirondacks totally fascinate me.
I went on a 10 day camping trip to the Adirondacks. I reserved campsites at two different campgrounds because I couldn’t get 10 days straight at one site. That is the extent of the planning I did for this trip. I had lots of ideas running through my mind of what I wanted to do, but I did not actual planning of what I was going to do or when I was… Read More
After a week of adventuring out from my base camp near Lake Placid it was time to move north to my new camping location, Buck Pond State Park. I decided that since I spent the first week of my trip driving and hiking and adventuring I wanted to really try to get into the relaxation part of what this trip was supposed to be. This decision was made easier by the simple… Read More
During this trip I camped at two different location because I couldn’t get a single 10 day block at one campsite. I had never done that before. I spent the first 7 days at one location and then I packed up and moved to a different campground in the Adirondacks. Check out time at the first campground was 11:00 AM but check in time at the next campground wasn’t until 3:00 PM…. Read More
Earlier this year a friend of mine and fellow runner posted online that he wanted to go run up Mount Marcy in the Adirondacks. He wanted to know if anyone would want to go with him. At the time I really knew nothing about what the rout up Mount Marcy was like. But it did sound like an interesting idea. I went to the Adirondacks with the idea in the back of… Read More
During my trip to the Adirondacks one hike I wanted to try to make sure I fit into my schedule was Mount Marcy. Mount Marcy is the tallest mountain in New York. The summit of the mountain is 5344 feet above sea level. The trail is 14.8 miles round trip. There is 3300 feet of elevation gain. I figured this would be a good day trip for me. This was also a… Read More
