Skiing the Whiteface Mountain Memorial Highway

Skiing the Whiteface Mountain Memorial Highway

It was early November in the Northeast, but by the looks of the picture above you would think it was the middle of January. On November 7th my dad and I took a hike up the Whiteface Mountain Memorial Highway (about 5 miles in length). The clouds gradually cleared out during our ascent and by the time we reached the summit the sun was brightly shining on the snow. We met all kinds of people out enjoying the weather, going up and down on their skis or snowshoes. After enjoying some of the views from the "Lake Placid Turn", I buckled my boots and stepped in my skis for the ride down to the bottom. My dad had his own form of transportation, a purple plastic sled. He is on a mission to create a new sport. He calls it the "Snow Skeleton". All in all, a good day in the mountains.

Capturing this photo presented several technical challenges that were exacerbated by the high winds. Upon zooming in at 10x after taking a test shot, my initial settings failed to freeze the motion of the krummholz swaying in the wind and was blurry.

Great Camps Sagamore and Santanoni

For a birthday getaway this past year, we decided to take a mini-tour of some of the Adirondack Great Camps. The first stop of the weekend was Camp Sagamore to hike a portion of the Sagamore Lake Loop and the Cascades Trail. The next day, we made our way to Camp Santanoni. Grabbing our mountain bikes and packing some snacks, we set out on the Newcomb Lake Road Trail, a 5-mile former carriage road that extends from the trailhead at the Gate Lodge to Newcomb Lake.
