Ascent Trip ReportThere was a couple inches of snow on the ground from the night before, so we all used Microspikes. This was Dad's first time using his Microspikes and he really loved them.
This was a nice easy hike for me and Dan after hiking Saint Regis in the morning. It was later in the day when we started and so the sun was getting low in the sky and made for a very beautiful descent.
Saranac Lake 6er #5 for me and Dan and #2 for Dad.
