Silver Lake Mountain – 7/23/16

Location: Peru, NY

So far, this has been the greatest summer for getting in some awesome hikes. I always love hiking while I’m up in the Adirondacks, but being at my lowest weight in my adult life has made them so much more enjoyable, and doable. I may be in my best shape ever right now.

We had another hike in mind, but there was a chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon, so we decided to do a short and quick one.

Silver Lake is short but it’s pretty intense. It climbs at a steady and somewhat steep incline the whole time.

I tried to get some shots with people in the distance as it’s the easiest way to show the changing elevation.

The best part about the hike was being able to recreate a shot from many years ago. Eight years ago, in June 2008, just six months after Harry and I first met, we came up to visit my mother and did our first hike together up Silver Lake Mountain. So we made sure when we got to that spot to get another picture of the two of us on the same rock. We are both in much better shape now!

After a snack at the top, with a great view to enjoy, it was a quick hike down to the car. A little under two hours and a great way to spend a Saturday morning.
