Adirondack High Peaks

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!

Nov 23, 2019 : Mount Jo
Andrew Lavigne, Jennifer Innes, Brian Connell, Chris Hatko
An easy return to 'twilight' hiking (a term coined during 2016's spate of three sunset/sunrise hikes), this time to the top of Mount Jo.
Twilight hikes work best when the distance (and therefore time) required to get from trailhe... [
Oct 13, 2019 : Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain
Andrew Lavigne, Ruth Goitom
A visit to something new for me, as well as an attempt to nail 2019's peak fall color weekend -- on Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain.
Time: mid-October. Weather: perfect. Colors: brilliant. We hit this just at the right time. Havi... [
Sep 21, 2019 : Pitchoff Mountain
Andrew Lavigne, Mouhcine Aitounejjar, Theresa Mammarella, Cheryl Nakamura, Ann, Babneet, Deepak
Pitchoff Ridge was our first fall hike of 2019, done as a so-called above-the-clouds work outing.
Despite the fact that we were shy of the real start of fall by two days, I still consider this a fall hike. The leaves had started... [
Aug 24, 2019 : South Dix, Grace Peak, Hough Peak, Dix Mountain
Andrew Lavigne, Jennifer Innes, Alana Wilcox, Pu Chen
Alana was looking to up her 46R summit count, and the rest of us were looking for a longer, less-crowded, and scenic outing. The Dix range is always generally reliable in regards to all of these parameters, so we cooked up a horseshoe-sha... [
Aug 18, 2019 : Algonquin Peak
Andrew Lavigne, Sai Krishna Mohan, Gino Brancatelli, Daniel Rodrigue, Katya Pichugin
Another above-the-clouds work outing, this time an outing a bit more difficult: the scenic and interesting Algonquin Loop including Avalanche Pass
Muggy and misty day, lots of puffy clouds at about 4000-6000 feet that obscured the... [
