Ascent Trip Report

This was my final 46 "ADK 46ERS 4000 FOOTER", I set out from the east side TH at Research Science Center north of Wilmington with friends Guy, Sylvie, and David and son Michael.
Waiting on top was my whole family .... Rose, Linda, Robert, Stephen (15 months), Celine, Marcus (2 months old), Julie, Marie-Michelle (Sylvie's daughter).

I really appreciated the presence of my family, Rose throughout this goal was very supportative and always with me, Guy was responsible for introducing me to the ADKs and therefore very special.
We took a group picture which I will treasure for life.

The hiking team descended on the west side to Connery Pond where we were picked up by the family.
