A short little hike by myself and Jenn, just to get out and hike a peak in the Adirondacks. We had been away from the Adirondacks for three months - much too long!

We picked Wright for its straightforwardness and nice summit. It would not take a long time, but still provide a good workout and good views.

The trail up Wright was in its usual summer state - that is to say, very eroded and bouldery. In order to add some spice, we climbed the rocky open nubble (which I've termed 'Wright's Nubble) that sits alongside the trail not too far above the waterfall and not too far below the Wright summit trail junction. Very nice views on top.

We took our snack break on the summit under hazy skies and calm winds. In another first for me, we visited the site of the 1963 B-47 bomber crash - only a few hundred feet from the summit and now with the way marked by a sign.

A quick walk back down to the trailhead and we were finished, just under five hours after we set out.
