Albany NY Stake YM Outing 2001
On 18 Aug 2001, Young Men from the Albany
NY Stake hiked through the Adirondack Mountains on one of the many beautiful
days that year. The gathering began the night before with a sleep over,
in light of the 5am start time. The early start time, however, did not
keep the Young Men from staying up all night. A 2 hour trip took the one
driver and 4 sleepers to the base of the mountains in St Huberts. Starting
the hike at about 7:30, the climb covered Lower Wolfjaw, Upper Wolfjaw,
Armstrong, Gothics, Saddleback, back to Gothics, Sawteeth, then down the
'scenic' train to Lower Ausable Lake before returning to St. Huberts. All
in all, a great trip, covering 21 miles and appx 7000 ft ascent. A few
photos follow. (please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any of
the full pictures).

drive up. Rumor has it they were up all of the night before.

Hang on tight on those rocky spots.
Lot's of fun...
We only lost one over the edge.

Fixed cable helped out on the steeper
parts on Gothics. Haystack is in the back.
