The Adirondacks

On Friday, Eli and I drove through the Adirondack Mountains in New York. It was rainy but quite beautiful.


marsh.


A mossy creek.


Berries... some orchid-like plant, not sure what it is yet.


A weird fungi that Eli called 'dead mans fingers'.


Pretty overlapping leaves... perhaps yellow birch.


Lake Placid, a touristy town we mostly avoided.


This is Poke-O-Moonshine Mountain, a steep outcropping that we climbed - 1000 feet of elevation gain in 1 mile. It was steep!


The view up there was really nice, though! We didn't climb to the fire lookout area at the very top and instead hung out on these rocks.


Reindeer lichen.


Ausible Chasm


the ferry to Vermont!


Final stats!

Eli and I are safe in Vermont and have been here since Saturday. Eli;s flight is really early tomorrow morning, so he'll be back in Atlanta soon.

I'll post Vermont pics when I get time
