Sunrise from Phelps Mountain

Sunrise from Phelps Mountain

It was a Thursday night at Clarkson University and I had no Friday classes. I wanted to go on an adventure, so I checked the weather. The forecast called for clear blue skies, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to catch a sunrise from the top of one of the Adirondack Peaks. It was almost midnight in mid-October and instead of going bed, my friend Garth and I decided to gather our belongings, get in the car, and drive to the Adirondack Park. After a 2 hour drive, we parked at the Adirondack Loj and began our trek up Phelps Mountain with the light of our headlamps. It was a cool night, nearly 20 degrees, but everything was still and silent. All that could be heard were our footsteps as we made the ascent to the summit. Our timing was perfect as we reached the Phelps summit at 6 am for the sunrise.

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
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.
