Started climbing as a teen in New Hampshire and Maine and moved to the Adirondacks at age 20. I was very active climbing in those years and for many years the hiking was more or a short nature trail or a jeep trail with my dogs. Last year I became rekindled and starting early this spring started hiking on any "Fair weather" day off I had. I completed the "Tupper Lake Triad" and am currently wortking on the "Saranac 6er Challenge". The spring started out with a comitment to the Adirondack Fire Tower Challenge and the above hikes offered fire towers so I got a 2 for one with a few of them.
