Ascent Trip Report

I took part in a work weekend in the Adirondacks organized by The ADK 46er Club. About 50 people met at the LOJ parking where we received instructions and material, 8 of us went to Wright Peak for a seeding assignment, the others went to Algonquin and Indian Pass ..... we added lime/fertilizer/seed to eroded areas. The seed was a mix of blue grass that apparently grows well in these types of areas.

It's a good tough hike to the summit (Rose didn't come, chose to stay back), we worked for about 2 hours before coming back to the LOJ Parking at 15h00 Hours, the group went to Pardy's for a beer.

In the evening we went to the annual ADK 46ers Dinner Meeting at the Keene Valley High School. I among others received a certificate of achievement, followed by a slide presentation on the Cascade Mountains.
We met Ajit's friends Margaret and Tom.

We overnighted at the Giant Parking TH on Rte 73, St Hubert.
