Basin Mountain | 4,827ft

 

Basin Mountain | Adirondacks

On our Great Range traverse in the fall of 2012, team PureADK hiked Saddleback, followed by Basin, and after a quick stop at Little Haystack, finished with the prominent and remote Haystack. Continuing on from Saddleback, the path continuing on to Basin, #9 at 4,826 ft., started off with a bang.  The trail quickly became steep and required some open rock scrambling – could definitely be tricky with a little rain or ice.  Once down the cliff-like trail from Saddleback, the path to Basin has some neat viewpoints.  There are a number of narrow ledges that have to be traversed, but once you reach the summit, you are struck with an amazing view of Little Haystack and Mount Haystack – our final destination for the day.

Behind the Shot: Altered Mind State

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.
