Not yet...

Two weeks ago, I encountered 3-4 feet of snow near the summit of Donaldson/Seward. I would carry them along for the ride. Better to have them and not need them rather than have to turn back.

I'll look into that. While I've already gone down the route of geocaching for my GIS project, the lean-to data would be interesting on its own. I wonder how they collected that data? I don't think it...

As mentioned before, it requires good quality batteries. Unlike a GPS or flashlight which can put along on dollar store batteries, the steripen WILL fail to work with dollar store batteries. I now...

I will be finishing up a ArcGIS map for a college class in the next few weeks detailing features in the ADK's. I would be very interested if there was an updated leanto list floating somewhere around...

I love my steripen, however precautions have to be taken. I will say that its the only type of "filtration"/sterilization device i've ever owned, so i don't have a whole lot of experience to go on. ...

Snowshoes? nope. I was banking on the snow being hard enough to support me (its worked in the past with no problem). In the end, it came down to very (record setting) temps weakening the crust. That...

Sewards April 3 2010

May would be brutal due to the black flies (as mentioned above). Many campsites and leantos are near water, making it even more of a problem.

In an effort to avoid black flies and use the only...

I live about 10 minutes west of that (aka, a slightly longer trip to the high peaks region), and I've had no problem doing high peaks as day trips. From Cranberry Lake to Lake Placid is a little over...

Not, this isn't our first high peak. We've tried to challenge ourselves with every climb, but for our first winter peak, something easy would probably be a good idea. We've knocked off Giant and...

Burntbridge ponds is an amazing lean to. It's in great condition with plenty of firewood nearby. Also, it's out of the way, so the chances of finding it unoccupied are high. Lean to is clean has a...
