Ascent Trip Report

My 9 year old son and I took the 2 hour trip to the high peaks region. We started out at the adk loj parking and went to the Marcy Dam and through Avalanche Pass and headed up toward Boundary (our original plan was Iroquois, Algonquin and Wright) but unexpected weather of hail/snow and an icy summit slowed us down. We did bag Algonquin for my 7th and my sons 3rd on becoming 46ers.
