The last two summers, my husband and I spent a week in the north-easternmost part of Maine. We love it there, up near Cobscook Bay. But we also felt like it might be time to change things around a bit this year, and do a little less driving for our vacation, too. We are allegedly on a quest to become Adirondack 46ers, but are a miiiiighty long way from accomplishing that task (like, 43 peaks away from it). So what better than a high peaks vacation for 2011?
Our friend D is a 46er, and will undoubtedly be assisting us in our planning. But I'd love to gather advice from other folks who've done some of the high peaks as well. We are thinking of camping for a week at the Adirondack Loj Wilderness Campground, which would be a nice central spot with access to lots of high peaks hikes. Plus, it has showers, and a week of climbing high peaks in August sounds somehow more appealing with a few showers thrown in. That, and having a central base means we don't have to hike a week's worth of food and gear with us at all times.
Any of my readers have any favorite high peaks hikes that start from somewhere near Adirondack Loj? Tips for stringing a few mountains together into a day hike?
