Blue Mountain



SO, like I said yesterday, we went to northern New York and the Adirondack Mountains to climb Blue Mountain Saturday and HOLY CATS it was gorgeous....but a tough climb.  2 miles up, 2 miles down, an hour and 20 minutes each way for us (when we started a teen and his father, apparently used to it, and BADASS, said to each other "OK, let's do the top  in 49 minutes"...and they DID).

Penny was a champ as you see, leading us the whole way, although she is still tired 2 days later.  There is an old fire tower at the top which we climbed for even BETTER views, although it is windy and scary up there...

The thing was, what had once been a logging road has eroded and evolved into a series of upward boulder strewn climbs ...it was awesome :) And back to the beach on BLue Mountain lake afterwards so the dog could cool her feet....

Great that you still had the energy to click the shutter! Thanks for doing the work and giving us the beautiful views!

We went to the Adirondack's several years ago for a backpacking trip. I had hoped to go further north near this area. Now that I see your photos, I clearly need to go back!
