Snowing on the summit, raining below tree line. The trail was practically a waterfall. Climbed Tabletop and Haystack in single day ... was tempted to add Marcy but waited until the next day.

Summited in the dark, during a storm on a trip in to Marcy before descending to search for camping. Most difficult night of my life!!!

Summited Mount Haystack 4960' on a clear, beautiful Sunday the day before Colombus day. Our group of 3 parked at the Marcy Field lot, took the bus to the Garden trailhead, and hiked in a bit past Johns Brook Lodge to set up camp. We summited Haystack, Basin, and Saddleback on Sunday, and hiked out from the JBL area on Monday morning in the rain. Had a great breakfast at Noonmark Diner!

The trail from Slant Rock to the Range trail is pretty steep, and requires a bit of descent before starting the ascent up to Haystack. The ridge on Haystack is fantastic and offers, in my opinion, the best views of any Adirondack High Peak, hands down.

Lovely day except for the rainstorm right when we got above treeline. *sigh* Will have to go back and do it again.

Leaving from the garden, we hit the summit by noon on a gorgeous summer day. Basin and Saddleback were ahead of us.

Left Slant Rock to climb haystack, relax a bit and down to lake Tears of the cloud to do a rapid ascent-descent of Skylight (missed it last year when doing Gray). We then went on to climbed Marcy. We had the summit to ourselves and the stewart. Super day. We climbed down to Slant Rock.

The weather was cool, trails dry, skies blue. Long but rewarding day in the High Peaks. Hiked from Garden up took Shorey back to Slant Rock to JBL and out.

7th and final peak on a Great Range traverse. Could see the crowds up on Marcy while I had the entire summit of Haystack all to myself.

Hiked in and stayed at Bushnell #2. Topped out at 9:30 the next morning. INCREDIBLE views of the Great Range! Spent an hour alone on the summit with light winds and warm sunshine. Worth the effort and may be my new favorite HP.

Hiked in from the Garden. It's a fairly long approach and the last couple miles get steep. It didn't help that the trail has become a creek in many places. Wind on the summit was knocking me off my feet, but at least it was clear weather. I wanted to get a good hike in before the holiday weekend. A total success.

Climbed Haystack, Basin, and Saddleback in one hike. Long and hard, but lots of fun.

Camped at Lake Colden for a week. Hiked from Lake Colden to 4 corners, and up Marcy in the fog. As we ate lunch on the summit a break in the clouds opened up and by the time lunch was over the sky was clear. We enjoyed a beautiful sunny afternoon as we traversed accross to Haystack, down through Panther Gorge, and back to Lake Colden. Long, hard day but definitely worth it.

Lots of peace and solitude trudging through the snow to bag this one.

Likely the best pure summit cone, and definitely the longest walk out of any High Peak

Part of a solo trip from Slant Rock. Steady rain ruined any views. Hope to do it again in a couple of weeks!

This was the last stop on a long day hike, previously hitting UWJ, Armstrong, Gothics, Saddleback, and Basin.

I was joined on this adventure by Mr. Steve and Mr. Baio.

This was #15 for me.
