Phelps Mountain: a Beautiful Adirondack High Peak Winter Hike!

Phelps Mountain: a Beautiful Adirondack High Peak Winter Hike!

Throwback to one of my favorite hikes ever, Phelps Mountain, located in the High Peaks Wilderness area of Adirondack Park in New York.

Winter 2010 blessed us with tons of great snow and we got out as much as we could to play in it! We had an opportunity to get away for an overnight at the Adirondack Loj the day after Christmas, so we treated ourselves to one of their private rooms and planned our tenth Adirondack “46’r” High Peak ascent!

The best part?!?! It was the first and still the only time we got to see an undercast! Not an especially thick undercast but enough to get us giddy about looking down at the clouds and get some cool photos.
