This is a nice page & a worthy edition & that is because I had heard of the mountain before & always got a laugh at the name & wondered where such a name came from & I just want to say keep up the good page & picture work. & perhaps you can give us a historical perspective for why it was called "Ampersand." & over & out.
And thankyo etc. etc.etc.
Just wonderful, Spent many a days in the area, either working or visiting. oh! and a great page also.
Thanks for stopping in and your kind words. Perhaps you have some photos to add in the future. I for one would have been glad to stretch my legs while driving between Oxford, Ohio and Maine. This would have made a nice relaxing hike, at least my son got to hike it.
Excellent page as always!
Thanks for checking it out! Just enjoyed my virtual tour of lots of pitches of Geronimo including the giant belay ledge. I suspect you are writing up the route now.
Need to find 1/2 hour to write up the route description....will do in the next day or so. THanks for checking out the pic's!
Great page... really appreciate your commitment to submit some of the lesser known peaks... thanks -Tim-
My son went here with Young Life, Looks like a fun excursion for young and old. Thanks for viewing and voting.
Thanks for stopping in and voting in the Adirondaks.
Great page! I'll try to add more pictures when I find some. I know I have some of Fish Creek Ponds to add to the camping section.
I like the fact that Ampersand isn't as well known... people are so narrow in their desire to climb ONLY mountains over 4000 feet.
Thanks for your good vote and providing a nice selection of photos.
Sorry for the tardy reply. Thank you for your good vote and good contributions such as the Quebed Mtns and Aconcagua page.
Thank your for your good vote and the big panorama
Great page! Wanted to add that there's is a 1/2 mile trail down to a picnic and beach area from the parking area. Nice spot to cool off after the hike if you want. Middle Saranac Lake.
I'm headed up this way and noticed that you show the height as 3,241' while the Adirondacks High Peaks Region map shows 3,352' ?
For pointing this out. I do not recall where I got the original information but the topozone gives the uppermost contour as 1010 m. and since the contours are at 10 meter intervals, this should give 1015 m for the summit but this is still a bit short of what is commonly listed. I checked all the US Geodetic stations listed for the summit and their highest station that I could find was 2400ish feet clearly not the summit of Ampersand. The best I could do with google earth tilta version was 3067 ft. So I will enter the height as it is commonly given: 3352 ft.
