Despite being the shortest and easiest pair of Adirondack High Peaks, even these aren’t always “easy”. Hiking was uneventful (but pretty!) until we hit the open summit rock. Upon exiting the cover of the trees, we were immediately hit with constant 30mph winds and gusts high enough to knock me over.

Big Slide

This hike will always be a favorite of mine, especially on perfect-weather days like this one. It was a great way to spend an afternoon!
