I've never had chili beer, but if anyone heads out west, PM me. The Denver area is the micro brew capitol. Nothing like stopping by Tommyknockers in Idaho Springs after a long rough hike/climb.

We have a official...

I'll admit the switchbacks here are typical, but there are of course exceptions to the rule. I actually prefer straight up wo/ switchbacks, but what can you do. I guess each area has it's...

That's some driveway! Where is that? I'm assuming the "gentler" approach is on the other side of the pass.

Not too much to add. In regards to starting early for the longer hikes as previously mentioned, you also want to do this for the obvious reason that days are shorter.

Question The most photographed ADK?

What would you say in the perfect quintessential peak in the Adirondacks? Is there one that is photographed more often than the rest and is found on more postcards or calendars then any other?
