On Wednesday I took a hike out of Keene Valley to Snow & Roostercomb mountains. It was fairly humid in the woods but there were spots where the breeze blew through and cooled me down. Breezy at both summits. Nice views of some of the high peaks ... 6.4 miles total.

starting off ... crossing a marshy area ... there was one more a short while later

Heading up Snow Mtn, getting closer to the summit ... typical rock scramble in the Adirondacks

the trail crew has built a ladder in one of the steeper sections going up Roostercomb

Giant Mtn from the Roostercomb summit ... the small "peak" in the foreground (with the exposed rocks) is Snow Mtn ... notice that some of the trees are changing color

I believe that the pyramid shaped mtn in the center of the photo is Mt. Marcy, highest peak in NY State

Amazing to see all these trees growing on this rock (this was on the trail coming down from Roostercomb
