Took the family up this time and spent almost 3 hrs on top just hanging out. Spent a good amount of that time looking fot the bomber on the N slope.

My 3rd ADK high peak on the day! Wright Peak is a very spectacular and scenic peak with views almost as good as Algonquin.

Climbed up through the clouds to find myself alone in the mist on the summit. Algonquin was obscured when I summited but the clouds soon gave way to an awesome view of the second highest peak in the Adirondacks. Headed back down to the trail junction and started up Algonquin.

First time rock climbing on some unkown cliff face. Exposed. Neat.

Temp. low-50s to start. Trails in fine condition, quite rocky but nothing too arduous. Encountered a moderate number of hikers, still a very comfortable hike. Reached summit in about 2.5 hours. Peak was only a bit cooler, wind under control.



The summit was not busy at all, only a few small groups. Thanks to one, I found the bomber wreckage and plaque on the northeast side. Views were great, nice clear day. Well-worth the side-trip on the way to the busy summit of Algonquin.

It sure is fun to be in Adirondacks. The panorama from the peak was breath taking. Wish I could stay there for longer.

Another easy winter hike in snowshoe. No difficulties. You can ski down from the summit, which I really recommand. Roundtrip from Adk Lodge is about 3h in winter.

A fun little diversion from the Alconquin Hike. Some rain in the area but it was fun exploring the summint and my son (11 y/o) loved the Airplane wreakage plague and debris.



Similar view as Algonquin, but from a lower vantage.

Arrgh! About 20 feet shy of the summit, beacuse the winds aloft were gusting to AT LEAST 50mph. we could barely stand up, and actually crawled up to a protective ledge and huddled next to a boulder to get some wind relief, that with the actuall summit just above us. Chancing the summit would've not been wise due to the very high wind gusts. A party just ahead of ours encountered the same conditions. Otherwise, a beautiful day, great sights and a challenging climb. See my pics!
