Happy Sunday guys!! This was a longgg weekend for me! It was my birthday Saturday & we did our yearly birthday hike at Phelps mountain in the Adirondacks in Upstate NY. Phelps is one of the 46 high peaks we’re working our way towards hiking. It’s an estimated 8.8 mile hike, and takes around 6-8 hours to hike. We however, thought it would be fun to hike to the halfway point & camp at the provided camp sites, then finish the hike this morning.
On our way in was a little cloudy/overcast & we didn’t get to the mountain until around 2 since we were staying over. It was a beautiful area- I stopped to take pictures many times and will post them later- and very well populated. Apparently this particular mountain has a big bear problem so we had to take extra precaution (no food unless stored in a bear canister away from camp, no fires). It was a very cold night so we put our sleeping bags together and just read and relaxed. This morning was a beautiful day to hike, and we finished by stopping by the nearby creek where elliott fished and I read.
Needless to say we’re exhausted today! I plan to sleep early and enjoy every second of it!
I hope you all had great weekends also! Did you do anything fun?
