I read a story in the Daily Enterprise this morning that said the rotten ties are being chipped or ground, and will soon be hauled away to landfills. In the meantime nearby residents are having...

I never saw or heard of that plant before, and I've never found an elderberry with thorns either, so I must have been lucky. I don't like elderberries fresh anyway, only cooked, so it sounds like it...

Elderberries in the Adirondacks?

I have been noticing where there are elderberries blooming in the last couple of weeks here, mostly in wet areas and on stream banks. They appear, grow for a few to ten years and then die out, so...

Stripperguy, that makes more sense than what I was thinking. I was imagining a truck that was designed to load and unload itself like a log truck.

Stripperguy, thanks for the pictures. Did you see what the truck was carrying, or set up to carry? It seems like something like that would be handy for picking up the old rails, but I don't know...

I wonder what they do with all the rotten ties. The rails are presumably scrapped or reused, and the ballast will make a roadbed for the rail trail, but all those old ties must have a lot of...

The bald eagle is at least nicely identifiable, and sometimes that's how it goes with moving targets in my experience.

The rail trail looks almost ready to use, I had thought that the DEC had...

Stripperguy, those are great pictures and it looks like a nice place. I'm looking forward to exploring the SRCA and surrounding waters as well as more of the Whitney Wilderness once I move. It's...

You might want to check out this excellent TR from DSettahr last year. I have not done the loop he describes but I spent some time exploring the area over a few trips some years ago and it is very...

Thanks for all the pictures and the narrative. It looks like a very nice area for sure. I especially like those various lakeside rocks, the way they're shaped and put in the water is great.

According to my 1998 edition of Discover The West Central Adirondacks there is no camping allowed on Upper Brown's Tract Pond because of its proximity to the campground at Lower, so I would assume...

Tim, that's very kind of you indeed. I'm not sure yet if I'll be renting a truck or if I'll be able to move more gradually with my little 5x8 trailer, I guess it depends on how the timing goes. ...

Those cisterns look neat. I'll plan to visit them someday. I'm a bit confused about why they're in the middle of the water. Were they built before the lower dam was built, or did the beaver dam...

Google maps is often unrealistically optimistic about roads that either don't exist at all or are private. There is a gated road that runs from somewhere near Horseshoe to the upper dam. It is...

I bought a Noah's Tarp 12 a number of years ago when I started canoe camping and I like it a lot. I put it up first when I arrive if it's raining and it gives me a dry place to work and get the tent...

Based on my incomplete experience with those lakes I would say there is some quite nice swimming, off large rocks or sandy beaches, and some sites are next to nice swimming spots. Some sites are in...

I've only climbed each of those mountains once, but my memory of Blue is that it felt like walking up a steep roof for a long stretch, just a continuous solid rock slope, and that Wakely was more...

Luckily there were no loose dogs on the way home, but I had a couple of chairs that I would have been willing to sacrifice in such a cause, if necessary. I'm planning to put them on the free section...
