A clear and dry day greeted the four of us for our hike up Bald Mountain in the Adirondacks. What a difference the weather makes. On an exploratory outing a few weeks earlier the trip leader never made it to the summit owing to some nasty humidity (literally walking in a cloud) and warm weather that took the energy (and fun) out of the walk. And zero-views to boot. This time we had low humidity and cooler weather. A grand time was had by all, and we enjoyed views of Whiteface, Hurricane, Green, Giant & Rocky Peak Ridge, the Dix Range, and various mountains to the SW, as well as Lake Champlain and Camel’s Hump. The hike was about 8 miles round trip and was in the Giant Mountain Wilderness, south of Elizabethtown near New Russia. With Susan, Cynde, Bamby and Ted outing leader.
