The resource degradation comes in waves. The resource has been degraded before, and largely recovered. Most really long term Adirondack hikers (longer than my 38 years of hiking here) agree that...

First saw an umbrella used in 1990, by a guide on Mount Baker (North Cascades). Multi day training trip, learning alpine techniques (self arrest, crevasse rescue, etc.). Guides carried umbrellas,...

Albany has stubbornly refused to hire the necessary number of Rangers since long before the current budget problem. It has nothing to do with the budget; Albany has just decided this is how they...

I was up there a couple weeks ago. We went the day after big rain (probably a mistake, but it was the only time window our friend had).

There was a lot of water still coming down; many of the...

Just remarkable...they are tearing holes in the road near Dudley Brook, and building a "trail to nowhere" at Cascade, but they cannot replace a bridge on a trail people actually use. And you should...
