Gorgeous Fall Day  Sucess!

What a magnificent view of the Champlain valley.
Beautiful canopy of fall colors (mostly yellows) and perfect weather. We were impressed by the beaver damn we crossed over.

My back pack felt unusually heavy and when I checked it at the summit, I found a hard cover book that was in there by accident. :) At least it wasn't my laptop!

Fourth of five  Sucess!

Took me about an hour and forty five minutes from the summit of Hough to here so this was where I took a meal break. Fine views.

Dix Range Traverse  Sucess!

About 20 miles of horrible snow conditions, brutal mountain ascents and descents, and unmarked, untamed wilderness. You know you're on an epic when you leave camp at 7:30 am and don't return until 11:00 pm. With that said, adding five more 46ers, getting awesome weather, and experiencing killer views made it all worth it!

Perfect day  Sucess!

Hiked up Macolm, S. Dix, to Grace, then to Hough. Went back via Lillian Brook trail, didn't have the time to go to Dix too and spend the time I wanted to there. Great day, perfect weather, couldn't ask for better. Met a lot of cool people along the way. 9 1/2 hours time. Good pace for me. There was a guy almost running up the Macolm slide, something about 24 peaks in 24 hours I think...I think he could make it, looked easy for him!

Dix Traverse  Sucess!

Perfect day on the Dix Range.

Grace Peak  Sucess!

The herd path between S.Dix and Grace was a muddy mess and the spruce was brutal on my skin. I found the view to be quite beautiful even in comparison to Hough.

Four in a day  Sucess!

You gotta love it when you can knock off 4 in a day, Macomb, South Dix, Hough and Dix with Dan and Jason

All 5 in one day  Sucess!

Summited East Dix Mountain 4012' during a 2 night backpacking trip in the Dix Range. After summiting its neighbor Sout Dix Mountain, we continued on the path from South Dix down to the col and the up East Dix Mountain. The summit provided excellent views. A nice place for a lunch break. We then retraced the trail back to the summit of South Dix Mountain in order to reach Hough Peak.

The Dixes!

In June '78 I knocked-off 5 peaks with my Scout Troop and a great leader that hooked me on wilderness adventures (Dix, East Dix, South Dix, Hough and McComb)

Tough for Dogs  Sucess!

Hiked up the slide via the herd path from Rt. 73. Excellent hike, and the slide is a lot of fun, although much more difficult near the top. Views are gorgeous - weather was mostly overcast but clear and calm. Would NOT recommend bringing dogs up the slide. We had a lab and a golden that successfully made it, although there were moments where we were dragging them and pretty sure we could go no further. We descended via the herd path to the side of the slide (didn't know it was an option beforehand), and out by the same route we came in. Spent one night alongside the trail on the way in; trail includes some beautiful camp spots along the river for backpackers.

Lunch stop  Sucess!

Third of five summits for the day with RD Jim. Herd paths easy to follow and in good shape. 31/46.

Dix Range Traverse  Sucess!

Did this as part of a one-day Dix Range Traverse. Came up the Macomb Slide and then down the herd path over South Dix. Beautiful sunny day with a few clouds here and there. Very nice views from East Dix. Forgot to go past the summit to check out the slide, oops!

Cool Little Summit  Sucess!

Dix range  Sucess!

This was another ADK adventure.We climbed the whole Dix range on the 4th of July.It was a very cold 35degrees that day with on and off rain with high winds.The highlight of East Dix was a dog rescue that I got to participate in.The dog was a yellow lab named "Maxx" who had been stuck up on a ledge for a few days.We found him and his owner was as greatful as he.For the peak itself,with all the excitement I did enjoy some of the open rock outcrops along the way.The summit was socked in preventing any marvelous veiws,but it was still a highlighted adventure....JW

From South Dix

Hiked from South Dix and then returned on the way to Hough

From South Dix  Sucess!

Warm temps and fresh snow made for an interesting day. No views to speak of, so a return in nicer weather is probably in order.
