The Adk 46  Other Adk hikes  Saranac Lake Fishing Outside the Blue Line  Photo Gallery  Links 

Welcome to my Adirondack Adventure Journal.
While a majority of my adventures have been inside the Blue Line, we did venture into the White Mountains of New Hampshire once. My time spent up north is split between hiking/backpacking the high peaks and other mountain destinations and fishing on Middle Saranac Lake. Of course we fish some of the many other Adirondack Lakes from time to time as well. My hiking passion began in earnest in 2001 when I discovered the High Peaks region. I do not consider myself a "rabid" peak-bagger as I've heard them referred to once, but I am interested in climbing the 46 High Peaks.

I've been blessed with a few friends and family members that also enjoy my passion for being in the Adirondacks so I almost always have a willing partner or two to join me. I hope you enjoy some of the photos and trip reports.
