Climbed with South Dix, East Dix and Hough via the Dix Trail from the Elk Lake Lodge. Going up the slide was a blast. Once we were over around 3000' a sea of clouds was at our feet. The summit boasted some great views of surrounding High Peaks.

Jayne fell in the streambed and yelled she was telling her mother that I was trying to kill her. Took her awhile to chill out. She was pissy because she wanted to follow a false herdpath. Sometimes the women are smarter. Sometimes not.

On Sept 16, 2001, I drove to the Elk Lake trailhead to climb the Dix Mtn Range. I started out by climbing the Macomb Slide. The blowdown was annoying but the slide climb was wonderful. This is the view of Elk Lake from the Macomb summit.
