Ascent Trip Report

2nd Adirondack Summit for the Fire Tower Challenge.

My first attempt at this hike was in the half hearted range. John and Joe were with me and I kind of knew they were not equipped. to complete the hike. When we reached the first beaver pond at 1.5 miles both boys were hesitant to cross. I tried to convince them but kind of knew it was not going to work. We returned to the car. Today ,two days later, Donnie and I returned and completed the hike.
I completed two additional tower climbs during this vacation and Donnie and Mindy completed Cascade and Porter, their first two High Peaks.
