Family Fun From The Inside...OUT!
I have finally pulled the photos and videos from our two ascents of Algonquin Peak via Avalanche Pass and posted a video on our YouTube channel!
I just booked our first Winter camp in the Adirondacks! SO EXCITED!! We will stay at a lean to in John’s Brook Valley next month. We are feverishly doing our due diligence now – so many options for gear! We have plenty of apparel already for cold and snow, but our camp gear is three-season.
All of these ‘first’ feelings have awakened a nostalgia in me. I keep thinking about our first excursion into the high peaks region.
This is a tale of EPIC proportions, about one of the very best days of my life. There is no way to cliff note this tale, so get comfortable. : )
I don’t know what possessed us to choose Algonquin as our first high peak climb, but we did. At 5,114 ft tall, it is the second highest mountain in NY state.
I believe the discussion went something like this: “Look at this one!!! Only 9 miles…or a little more for two more peaks!”
Teehee. ; )
