When we made plans to come up to the Adirondacks for a month this year, I was really hoping that we would get a chance to do a bit more hiking, and we’re off to a good start.
Yesterday’s plan was a 3 mile hike up Hurricane Mountain. Unfortunately, Harry’s back was giving him issues. It happens periodically and is one of those things where it just means a few days of taking it easy until it corrects itself. So he decided to stay put. I left him set up at my mother’s house with all of his technological devices to keep him company.
My mother and I drove down to town to meet her hiking buddies and then we traveled the short distance to the Hurricane Mountain trailhead.
The sign says 2.6 miles to the summit, but there is a new trail as of last year which is a bit longer. Three miles and 2000 ft up.
There has been a lot of rain so we had the sounds of rushing water for most of the hike. Only one tricky water crossing though.
We ate lunch at the summit under a fire tower. There was a 360 degree view. Wow. So beautiful.
The view of the fire tower at the top as we started back down…
Another great hike!
