Ed,

Thanks for this. We have been itchin' to get out but have been intimidated by the reputation of black fly season. Which is funny since we of course tend to feed the wildlife in the summer when...

We filtered from a trickle in the mentioned Dickerson Notch in the mid summer dry spell. We also filtered from Lake Marie Louise - loamy taste but sure it the spot. Once you get on the ridge the...

If this increases traffic at other sites I am really concerned about AMR. I feel they are extremely generous allowing me to traipse through their beautiful community to get to Lake Road, and then of...

Safety glasses instear of ski goggles?

We were on top of Marcy in Oct and the wind and sleet were cranked up. The sleet in the face was tough and made the summit rather inhabitable. Hoping to do Algonquin over to Iroquois this weekend and...

Same. We have since moved to hammocks but these served us well. Small, easy to inflate and good R rating

We use Trangia/Esbit Alcohol 12 months down to 5F. But yes - difficult to simmer and I would not wish to melt snow with it all that much. Its simplicity, for us, can't be beat.

Yes - no doubt.

We find it more comfortable to learn from other's mistakes. We review equipment or practices we see along the trail. After we pass someone we will comment on - "wow, nice boots"...

Sunrise?

We've done a few winter peaks and always camp out one or two nights. My last non-peak trip in January I hiked for about two hours in the dark and found that rather pleasant. Was wondering if there...

Great trip report. I agree that in some ways winter peaking is easier. Trails are a bit flatter when snow fills in nicely around all of the boulders. Great photos. A few quick questions:

Love the night sky photo - was that a DSLR or a phone camera app?

Great job working within your limits. Sure, the outcrop would have been nice but that was hind-site.

I have winter camped often...

Camped near Grizzle Ocean and at Clear Pond Lean-to a few weeks back. Very enjoyable. Trails were broken but saw no traffic other than ice fishermen on Putnam Pond (which you can cross on ice). Very...

Not so worried about 12" vs 8". IMHO if you are sleeping back country in the ADK's in the winter you wish to have snowshoes with you. Waking up to unexpected snow a few miles from your car can be...

Hey - a comment about spikes. There are three well known kinds. The very popular Kahtoolas have 3/8 inch spikes. My Hillsound Free Steps - which we have winter hiked a few peaks with, are only 1/4...

I would have done same! Even if you can cross it in the morning, with a full afternoon of snow-melt the same brook would have been even more challenging in the afternoon. We are working on our 46 and...

DSettahr,

I think I read that you did the Northville Lake Placid trail in winter. Was that with the Ascents?

MSR Evo?

I have rented snowshoes for a few high peak ascents. I think I have rented the basic MSR Evo once or twice (22"), Tubbs tube framed Wilderness (25") and MSR Lightning Ascent.

The Evo's seemed to...
