    I haven't been looking at Covid deaths but I think it's 3% of the cases in this state. We have more than the usual share of elderly and infirmed. And yes, there are three counties: Dade Broward and...

    It would take a lot to make the huts go away. If that ever happens I hope it's not until I can take my grandkids to all of them (yes, selfish, they are Tampa kids who are learning to love my home...

    My thoughts exactly. The only way the huts could be opened IMO would be if they could successfully book one family per room. Might work at Lonesome Lake, but huts like Lakes, Zealand - seems to me...

    Just received the email that all AMC huts are closed this "the remainder of 2020." I have the option to do Pinkham or Highland, get a refund or a credit, or book for 2021.

    When I read that the fourteen day quarantine requirement in Maine would extend through August, I immediately wrote Maine off as a possible place to spend my vacation dollars. I'm sure I'm not alone....

    I've read the last two days' posts. As a resident I recall out-of-state plates year round in the area and at trailheads. Do you see a marked increase in outside visitors for northern NH for this...

    Living on FL west coast now and while our beaches are still closed, they could open if the "stay moving" is enforced. Our inland hiking trailheads are also closed but we are permitted to park on the...

    Table Top August 12, 2017

    There's a reroute on the VanHoevenberg trail just before Marcy dam - it's muddy and rooty, generallly messy. Conditions muddy muddy from the Table Top cutoff to the summit. Bootsucking pits just...
  13. Algonquin and Iroquois via Van Hoevenberg and Algonquin trails, August 9, 2017

    Algonquin and Iroquois via the more popular up and back route. Trail was wet and muddy, the way it's been in the Adirondacks this rainy summer. Slabs from Wright junction to summit of Algonquin...
  14. Sawteeth via Weld and Sawteeth Trails, 8/8/2017

    Some muddy spots but overall the trail is in good shape.

    No special equipment needed.

    Rain was predicted so we chose this lone peak. Lots of fun when you have all day to do a moderate climb. ...
  15. Wright Peak via Van Hoevenberg,Algonquin and Spur trails, 7/21/2017

    After lots of rain earlier in the week the trail was fairly dry with only a few puddles, though still lots of muddy spots. Watery areas are fine. Once on the spur to the summit, those .4 miles are...
  16. Gothics, Armstrong and Upper Wolfjaw 7/19/2017

    Did the ridge via the Ore Bed Brook trail from Johns Brook Lodge. Johns Brook crossing took a bit of time as the river was swollen from Monday's torrential rains. Trails are very muddy, bring bug...
  17. Haystack from Johns Brook Lodge 7/18/17

    Torrential rain the day before made for extremely wet, flooded conditions. This hampered our progress. This year's mud also made for slow going. Bring bug repellent.

    What started out as a two...
  18. Cathedral and White Horse Ledges 3/5/17

    Bryce trail has some snow, some bare ground and a lot of ice. The col between the two ledges is snow covered. The area from the col to Cathedral ledges is treacherous in places - we grabbed onto...

    A very wet day, with bands of rain throughout the morning. We...
  20. Mt. Colden via ADK Parking Area (HPIC), August 7, 2016

    Trail very muddy around Lake Arnold, some areas with walk-arounds, others you just pick a spot to step and hope for the best. Many bog bridges have been replaced but there's a good number of old...

    Trail from the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center is steep with rolly rocks (used to be a ski lift corridor). Trail from the big cairn is in great shape.

    Phelps Mountain July 24, 2016

    Easy access from the Van Hoevenberg trail. Once you leave VH, trail steepens and is quite rough and eroded with several blow-downs around (but not in) the trail.

    This hike was steeper than...
  24. Street and Nye Mountains, July 23, 2016.

    Indian Pass Brook crossing was mostly rocks with a "trickle" of water. A handful of older blowdowns have walk-arounds. Trail eroded and rough (typical of a "trailless peak").

    We almost passed by...

    There was a steward at the summit of Cascade. We...
