Poke-O-Moonshine Hike 7/16/16

Location: Peru, NY

We were headed north to the Adirondacks when I got a text from a friend of ours asking if we were interested in doing a short hike the next day. We had our niece with us and had planned on going to AuSable Chasm on Saturday, but changed our plans as a hike sounded like more fun (and we didn’t have to pay for it either).



Saturday morning we drove to AuSable to meet with the rest of the hiking group and then to the trailhead where we parked our cars. We were taking one route up and another back down, so Hannah and I waited at the trailhead while they took a car over to leave for us at our exit point.



‘Hikes in the Adirondacks usually consist of a lot of hopping around big rocks, and this one was no exception. They weren’t any challenge for my niece though, who was often more than a few steps ahead of us!




Once we started getting above the treeline, we had a lot of nice outlook points and picture taking spots!




I never get tired of taking pictures of all the awesome landscapes!









At the summit we all took a break and enjoyed our lunches while taking in all the majestic views!








Hannah and I were here!!

It was a fun way to spend our day with Hannah, and a great first hike to kick off our few weeks here in the Adirondacks!
