It's pretty high right now but 3 weeks is a long time. Hard to say for sure what will happen before your trip; it really depends on the weather. Most likely the water levels will drop before you...

I heard somewhere also that they were planning to run a big magnet over the tracks to grab anything with iron in it out of the gravel... No idea how accurate this statement is, but it might not be a...

Last year was a bad mouse year across the entire Adirondack Park. We were catching 4 or 5 a day in my house easily, all summer long. I had mice get into my bear hang at the Island House Lean-to...
