Algonquin Peak in the Adirondacks, NY.

Fortuitously, while we were out on our OD run Sunday morning (10/7/07) during the Lake Placid camp, Haley Johnson (MWSC, biathlon) was on a scenic flight over the Adirondacks. After conferring we decided that there was a pretty good chance that the little people standing on the top of Algonquin Peak were the CXC/SVSEF/USST group that I was running with!

Wright Peak in the Adirondacks, I didn't make the climb to the top, but some of the boys did.

Lake Placid, NY and Whiteface Mountain.

Thanks to Haley J for sharing taking and sharing these photos. There's more info about Haley and the Maine Winter Sports Center HERE.

Quiz: How many peaks in the Adirondacks are 4000 feet or more in elevation?

Hint: It's the same number as there are 4000' peaks in the White Mountains in New Hampshire.

hmm, I think the number you're thinking off is 46. There's been some revisions though with 4 peaks removed from the Adirondack list and 2 added to the White Mountains list making the new answer:

I like how original names are sometimes. Like number 13 "Nippletop." I wonder how long it took 'em to decide that one?

I checked the 46'er list on the web. You are right. Though they still have a 46'er club, 4 of the peaks are now resurveyed to be under 4000 feet. Maybe Upper NY state is sinking into Lake Champlain!? Thanks again - your web site made me learn sumthin' new!
