Hi - If you're in Buffalo, I am told that Premier on Delaware probably has it, and that Consumer Beverages may also. I would call to make sure, and maybe they can get it for you if they aren't...

Hi there - parking at the Loj on a busy holiday weekend could be a problem. You may be diverted to the South Meadows road and have to walk a couple of extra miles. You'll just have to wait and see....

I was under the impression that no swimming was allowed at Lake Harris. You may want to check that out. I believe there is a town beach somewhere in Newcomb however.

I climbed Algonquin from Avalanche Lake about 20 years ago. I had already done it the other way, and we were camped at Marcy Dam so it seemed to make sense at the time. I didn't think the trail was...

Hey Teresa - when are you going? Skylight is probably my favorite peak and a mountain I have wanted to return to for a long time. I have Alison's graduation coming up, however, and may not make it...

Hi - I hope you have a great weekend. You won't have to worry about parking - follow the signs to the campground (to the right after the gate), rather than the general parking lot to the left. ...

Hi - I have Verizon, and although I hate to admit it, I have made calls from the summits of Santanoni and Algonquin (my husband likes to know that I'm safe). I have service in Lake Placid, but not...

I would concur with the advice you've been given. The UWJ, Armstrong, Gothics loop is a great hike, and if you're really energetic, you could add LWJ on the end. I would agree that Saddleback and...

I did the Santas in August, and I share your fondness for the range. It was a beautiful clear day, during a fairly dry spell, so the mud was minimal. Even the Couchie swamp was, dare I say it, a...
