Well, this morning I started up early and drove to the Goodnow Mountain trailhead. It is in the Adirondak Mountains, in the Huntington Wildlife Forest. The land is owned and managed by the State University of NY (SUNY). The hike was about 2 miles each way, and the dogs did a great job with it. Anna stayed on the leash since she can’t be trusted in such an open environment, but Oscar walked on his own and kept a good pace. It was 20 degF at the bottom, and very cold and windy at the top. I actually could not open the cache because it was frozen into its little cave. The view and hike were worth more than the treasure.

I’m planning to create some html pages for my geocache links. Stay tuned for a new link in the sidebar.
It looks beautiful from here. . . on the computer screen. . . from my nice warm kitchen!! I think the scenery wouldn’t be the only thing that took my breath away if I was there. It looks awfully cold with all that snow. . .
I did take the photo, and it was breathtaking… And cold!!! It was from the fire tower, about 60 feet from the ground. You can get the full size image from the Geocaching page (link is in the sidebar).
Maybe the reason the bicycle blew away is that it was made too much like the kite… Sometimes when we have a great and wonderful experience, we try to re-create it over and over, sort of like trying to re-create making the kite and getting a bicycle that blows away 🙂
The pups hiked in the SNOW? You didn’t have to carry Anna? Pretty picture. Hopefully we’ll get some good hiking in with Avery this summer, he seems to be pretty comfortable in the Kelty Pack.
Did you take this photo? Beautiful!!! Breathtaking!! Glad you got to be there… Sounds like the pups had a good little workout…
