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.

My favorite waterfall photos are often taken while standing right in the water, and this one was no exception. This helps to get the viewer closer to the action and make them feel as if they’re about to get wet themselves.

We worked our way past the big lines on Colden toward the Matrix, something I hoped to lead this year after following it in March of 2019. Nothing looked appealing until we turned our gaze to Avalanche Mountain Gully.
