Personally, I don't see anything about that damage on the lean-to that indicates definitively to me that it was a bear. It could just as easily be porcupine, or idiot campers even. I wouldn't be...

Is that Slush Pond?

Looks like someone had a permit hunting camp back there in the fall, and hauled in a lot more firewood than they ended up using. If that's the worst thing about that site,...

You're not wrong, but it's worth pointing out that part of the reason for this is because most tourists tend to go other places (like Lake Placid) and spend money there instead. Tupper Lake has...

Rooster Comb isn't that high, maybe 2700 feet, but TCD is right- the trail is on north-facing slopes. That does make a big difference.

I think Haystack (assuming you mean the 6er one) would be...
