That Pano is awesome!

I wonder if there will ever be a re-route of the Cliff herd trail? When I did it I literally could have swam in the mud up the mountain. You know the herd trail is in rough...

That looks like a fun idea. I imagine the whack will be quite tough until you drop below around 3000', but in my opinion bushwhacking downhill is typically easier than ascending.

Behold, the worst route up Lost Pond + Hoffman and Texas Ridge last weekend

My wife and I climbed Hoffman and Texas Ridge Saturday. The hike was so insanely long; in fact, the hike is probably still going on.

Not having canisters or signs at the summits in the Adirondack makes no sense

In light of the fact that the Lake Placid ski jumps have more invasive effect into the landscape literally and visually than the aggregate effect of 5000 canisters and summit signs.
Just saying.

"17 miles down the Moose River Plains Road"
