Monday; I wasn't planning on a hike, but after a few minutes of walking around the house, that was enough! The weather was clearing, so I packed up and headed North.
One of my favorite spots in the Adirondacks is the Elk Lake area. Macomb, Dixes, and Panther Gorge are all awesome places to explore.
Being a bit out of shape, I thought I'd take a relatively flat walk towards Panther Gorge. Well, as usual, I didn't make it all the way, but I did manage to get some nice pictures.
It looks like there is still some snow up high, from what I glimpsed on Marcy. But this will all be gone, soon, with a few more days like today. Surprisingly, the bugs weren't all that bad, with a little help from some deet.
Every time I'm out here, I have to laugh at how lucky I am to be able to venture through these hills!
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived..."
