Thanks Valerie,
I would be very interested in both the Ausable and Wickham Marsh Trails. How were they?

I will get out to the VICs soon too, I hope...

We did the Charles Lathrup Nature Trail...

Hi Valerie... this is so very coincidental, but I too broke my ankle this spring (I was hit head-on on April 26th by a teenage driver who was batting at a bee -- or more probably text messaging). It...

Need a High Peaks Statistic...

Does anyone have a source for an approximate number of people who summit Marcy every summer? Also the number of people who use the high peaks per year?
Much appreciate it, if you do.
Best,
Sheri

Dogs under a year old also have poor depth perception (so says my vet). I found this out after my lab puppy jumped off a cliff when he saw me below. Amazingly he only ended up with a broken elbow,...

Definitely false hellebore. You see it commonly in swampy areas around the park. I don't know why people mistake it for skunk cabbage, except they are found in similar wet habitats. False hellebore...

Thanks for all your thoughts on this.

I sometimes find this to be a frustrating time of year to climb peaks. The trail up today had that narrow band of packed snow that if you stepped off sent you...

Smart little suckers...

Wood frogs seem to always be the next up after the peepers in the spring. A couple of weeks after they start calling, the black flies arrive. Then all hell breaks loose --...

Ahhh... a moose, of course. It seemed too big, but there was no frame of reference, so that makes sense and would explain the island location. Okay, hobbitling, thanks for crushing my triceratops...

High Peaks Snow Status

Anyone been up anything this week? I want to climb Colvin and Blake tomorrow and have no idea what to wear. Had it been last year I would say snowshoes. This year is a mystery. Any thoughts?
