  • Great Range Traverse (video)

    I went out with a friend this past weekend to tackle the Great Range. I completed my 46er a few weekends ago and thought might as well do it all over again.

    This trip report is in the form of video...you may have to view in full screen. when making the video it reduced the side of it for some reason.

    Also, here are pictures:

    Hope yall enjoy!!

It’s the top that defines the sides. So on we go...we have a long way...no hurry...just one step after the next...."

    I love the video from the top of Marcy looking at Haystack (about 2 minutes in) where the apline grass is flowing in the wind.

    What type of camera do you use?

      I use a nikon d300s. It's an slr with HD video. If you want I can post the original HD clip. for some reason, when i made the movie, it screwed things up.

        Awesome trip report! Very cool video of the hike!

        btw: Who is the singer of the second song? I've heard the song, just can't remember whom it is.

          Really like what you did with this. Very artistic.

          Clever how you fool us with thinking it's a still shot and then you start moving.

          Your night sky was impressive. That camera must have been heavy!

          Which mountain had the ropes you pulled up on? Gothics? Saddleback?

              thanks!

              the camera is heavy. about 10 pounds heavy

              the mountain with ropes is gothics. I'd have to say, gothics and saddleback are my top 5 favorites

                    I know I already said it, but this video is really cool.

                      Kurt Von, I have really enjoyed this and all of your other recent trip reports. You really have a knack for visuals. Great work and good luck with all your future Adirondack endevors.

                        Excellent video Kurt, I can't wait for the trip this weekend! The trap dike should make for some incredible video.
