Ascent Trip Report

Had a damn long descent coming down from Iroquois heading back to South Meadow where my car was. Took Iroquois herd path, Lake Colden to Algonquin, NW Lake Colden, Avalanche Pass, and Marcy Dam Truck Trails. Had total solitude on hikes the previous two days but that ended pretty quick today-saw probably 300 other hikers.
