Welcome to the Adirondack High Peaks section of my web page. This section serves a dual purpose: to provide a compendium of images and information about my exploration of these mountains, and to provide a log of the adventures that led to me becoming Adirondack 46er #5506!

The Adirondack Park of Northern New York State is a wonderful expanse of wilderness in the middle of a busy and populous region of the continent. In fact, it is the largest park in the whole of Eastern North America. This set of web pages focuses on the more mountainous northeast region of the park known as the "High Peaks" region. This is an area characterized by newly-uplifted but ancient-in-composition granitic rock, worn down over the millennia by erosionary processes into dome-shaped summits. Trails are often rugged, eroded and steep.

I hope you find this set of pages to be a good companion resource to all of the other Adirondack Mountain pages on the internet!
