Ascent Trip ReportAfter warming up with Mount Jo yesterday evening, we attacked one of the 46 4000-feet peaks in the Adirondack area. Except for the time we spent on the bald summit we stayed below the tree-line all day, which was good since the woods provided some protection against the hot sun. A fantastic view awaited us at the top and among other peaks we saw Mount Marcy, the NY highpoint (which, unfortunately, was too remote for our complete family and "the Ore Mountaineers" to reach). I could not resist to leave the group and make a quick ascent of the close-by Mount Porter.
