To the Top of Marcy!

 

For the last half mile of Marcy, I wasn’t taking any pictures! It was pretty steep and rocky. We were happy to find it was a rough type of rock so we were able to get good traction with our hiking boots.

It took us 5 hours and 50 minutes to cover the 7.5 miles to the top of the highest mountain in New York State!

 

But I do have a lot of pictures of us at the top!!

One member of our hiking group got a great shot of Harry and me making our way down the rock face (although it makes me think we’re doing some kind of funny rock dance).

It took us 4 hrs. and 15 minutes to travel the 7.5 miles back to our car. We had such a great time and it just left us wanting more!

We have one week left here in the Adirondacks and plan to do at least a couple more hikes before we leave next Thursday.

    1. Thanks Carl! Yes I am woefully overdue for a blog post. We did make it to Amazon in late September after a family wedding in NY earlier in the month. It's been going really well. Your comment is the kick in the butt I needed, so I'll post a new update soon!! :)
