Some shots from a recent trip. The snow was soft and deep, so I had to excavate a place for the tent--and since I didn't dig out much more than I needed, my kitchen arrangement was convenient and cozy.

I'm already looking forward to my next overnight, wherever that might be.

All of these shots (except one!) are from March. I'll let you decide for yourselves which one is the oddball.

Actually, it was borrowed from a nearby lean-to. Nobody was using the lean-to, and I thought that little set-up was too good to resist. I did put it back when I was finished, though.

It's still sitting there at the Wolf Pond Lean-to over in the Five Ponds. Anyone who wants to haul it out over a minimum of 4.6 miles of trail from the Oswegatchie, or 6.5 miles from Bear Pond Road, or 10 miles from Youngs Road, can have it! You'll be the envy of all your campmates! You'll never settle for a twig table again!

First one's a rainy trip to WV in 04.
Second was a nice spring trip to the Allegheny Islands in PA in 06.
Third was last fall near Sonds Pond in Central PA.

Only a few short weeks till our first trip to the Adirondacks, looking forward to it.

In the saddle below Bald...Had we known we'd see no one on this trail whatsoever we'd have camped 200 ft higher on the ridge basically trailside as we'd have been perfectly set up for the sunrise.

I found these shots from two years ago while digging trough my files. What was funny about this was that it was July 8th and fairly warm. I had only built a small fire for something to do--we were camping in a lightly used area, and there was a lot of dead wood all over the place. Lexie parked herself right next to the fire as though she was freezing. Never did figure out why.

Justin,

Where is that picture from?

The body of water in the background looks too narrow to be Grizzle, unless on the West end on the southern part on that really annoying 'marked' (yeah right) trail.

I have some really great pics around the 4th of July when I was there last year, I need to find them to post. The best pic by far was Bear Pond, and then on top Treadway around 2pm. I fell asleep on top of there for 4 hours and when I woke up ran over to grizzle ocean to stay the night. I think it was the most I have never seen anyone in that entire area.
I missed a really good shot that morning at grizzle full moon over the water around 5am but my batteries had died

Pharaoh Lakes: Oh I was there this past weekend also. Haven't uploaded my photos yet but I've got some good ones. Mine are from Friday so there's a bit more ice on the pond. Threes a crowd so I had to go.

It's gotta be lillypad. The middle picture gives it away. I can see it in the background over the tarp now.

This was what I woke up to Thursday morning while camping at the Biesemeyer Lean-to at Lost Pond... what a way to welcome May!

The funny thing was that at midnight, the sky was perfectly clear. The snow was a complete surprise.

Happily, it was gone in a few hours.
