Ya, unfortunately, I'll be alone on this trip. My parents are too old to do it and my wife will be looking after a 4 month old at that point. I'll see about maybe getting one of them to pick me up.

In order to get Rocky Peak from the Chapel Pond trailhead, I'd have to summit Giant, summit Rocky Peak, and return over Giant?

Thanks for all the comments!

I'm not going to answer the dog question, but I agree with the DSettahr on the VanHoevenburg Trail being the way to go. I did this last August and said to myself that more trails should be like this...

Giant Mt.

All,

My apologies if this question has been asked before.

I'm hoping to hike Giant this coming summer, probably late August or early September. Is there a route to the Giant summit that gets me...

I agree with not pushing it, so we'll gauge interest once we reach the summit of Marcy.

If we were to add Gray after Marcy, what is the additional milage added to the round trip from the Loj and...

Check on the footware. Thanks.

I've done Cascade and Porter. I've also done Hovenberg, which had nice views.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Well, with the wife most likely joining me, think on the easier side. I originally wanted to do Street/Nye, but have been talked out of it due to the river that needs to be forded. Big Slide was...

Where to hike?

I'm headed up to Lake Placid tomorrow afternoon for the weekend. I'd like to get a nice hike in on Friday. Where should I go that has nice views of the High Peaks?

I've obviously never done this hike, so bare with me. There is one stream/river crossing that would hold up the entire hike?

If that is the case, what 46'er/s would you suggest as an alternative?...

Well, if I make it up there soon, the hike day will be March 19. Everything should still be good and frozen or snow covered at that point still, right?

Street/Nye

I'm looking to do an easier late winter/early spring hike in two weeks, but want to get another 46'er or two under the belt doing it. Street and Nye are two easier summits, right?

Thanks,

Martin

I'd check out Adorama.com, B&H.com, and J&R.com. I just purchased a lens for my Canon 40D from J&R. They had free shipping and no tax, on top of the decent price.

I am by no means an expert photographer, but try shooting with a lower ISO. That way the pic will be less grainy from the start.
