Nice! I'm glad you enjoyed that trail - it's a beauty.

The DEC guidance is very general, and largely mindless. Trail conditions are very specific from one trail to the next, depending on...

Very hard to predict the flies. I was out bushwhacking today on Mt. Van Hoevenberg, and there were zero bugs in the air. I have been told that they are coming out now at Crane Mountain in the...

Thanks for the info, Tony. Of course this is a lightly used trail, but it has great historical significance.

MSB, you...

Glad it was just knee deep! Ponds are like a booby trap now; I think they are going to go out very suddenly this year. We were rock climbing in the warm sun yesterday (T shirt weather), and it was...

Congrats on retiring! I don't hunt or fish but I "scout" for new rock climbing cliffs. Retired a few years ago. Life is very, very good.

I'm guessing Sno Bird (along the trail between Haystack and Basin) is probably the legal campsite that has the strongest combination of high elevation and difficult access. You can make the access...

I agree completely. There is no breeding population.

The reason the DEC kept the "Heart" cat data secret is discussed in another thread; I don't have the link right now. Actually stating that...

I agree - I don't think they pass through routinely. But I also don't think there has been only one. I think it's one, maybe in ten years. Probably loners, like the well documented one. And most...

I have no direct report. But temperatures in Saranac Lake have been cold. Sunday's low and high were 7F and 27F; this morning's low was 9F. Ice may be slow to leave with single digit lows and...

I think a lot of folks have seen one once or twice. While there is no breeding population, it's obviously a fact that a mountain lion passes through occasionally. The cat that was the subject of...
