We spent the weekend in the Adirondack Mountains near Lake Placid, NY. We had a fabulous time at the Adirondack Loj providing outreach at the popular Marcy Dam Trailhead, presenting a Friday evening campfire chat, and a Saturday evening Awareness Workshop at the High Peaks Wilderness Visitor Center. It was a very busy weekend at the Loj and we were able to talk to many visitors about the necessary use of a bear canister in the Eastern High Peaks region, proper disposal of human waste in the backcountry, and the importance of planning ahead for their trip.
On our off time, we explored the beautiful mountains with Kate's family. This shot was taken on top of Mount Jo, a short hike right near the Adirondack Loj. It was so nice to spend the weekend with family and friends!
This is a photo of the ADK Trail Crew leader on his way out to the High Peaks Wilderness. Check out the size of that bear canister! A special thanks to Ryan Doyle for making our stay so comfortable and everything the Adirondack Mountain Club does for Leave No Trace!
Happy Adventuring...Kate and Tracy
