The First Brother
December 2017
Did a short hike to check out the early winter conditions in the Adirondacks at the beginning of December 2017. Decided to check out the First Brother - an excellent way to quickly get up to a good view of the Central High Peaks. Weather was very placid - above freezing and calm. There was an overcast but it was quite high and only obscured the very highest tips of the surrounding peaks.
Cloudy, but high
