Allen Brook
Allen Brook has many pretty little cascade and flumes. This is a neat section where the entire volume of the brook is channelled into a narrow slot. [enlarge]
In the clouds
At around 3000 feet we enter the clouds. Very ghostly. On a more positive note, the rain stops for a while. [enlarge]
Double 46er Achieved!
Upon climbing this peak, Ewart becomes a double Adirondack 46er! (Unofficially). Ewart is given an [unofficial] double 46er hat, and a can of European brew! Congratulations Ewart! [enlarge]
Dare'ing on Allen
The Dare Cinnamon Danish cookies make it to the top of this challenging peak. Good job, cookies! [enlarge]
Andrew looks scared
Or maybe tired... Or maybe surprised? Anyway, not a good picture of me, but is proof that I have made it up this blasted mountain. Number 40 for me! [enlarge]
Excellent Summit View
A shot of the excellent view from the lookout near the summit (facing east). Haystack and some of the Great Range are in that direction! [enlarge]
Wet, dark, but almost finished
Totally soaked and tired after almost 30km of hiking through some of the muckiest and roughest trails, the suspension bridge over the Hudson is a welcome sight! [enlarge]
Signing out!
We made it back safe and sound! [enlarge]

Elevation Profile over Distance
This is the GPS-derived elevation profile of the Allen mountain hike. Note that this is only the ascent (the descent would have an identical profile). I was getting very poor GPS reception on the way down so I did not bother to make a profile of the return leg. [enlarge]
Elevation profile over time
This is the GPS-derived elevation profile of the Allen mountain hike, over time. Note that this is only the ascent. We arrived back at the trailhead around 6:40pm. I was getting very poor GPS reception on the way down so I did not bother to make a profile of the return leg. [enlarge]
