    I wonder which section it was, I am struggling to remember any real treacherous section prior to crossing the ledge in the photos above. That must have been just awful for everyone involved that day....

    This thread is interesting. I simultaneously agree with Michael J and Roadtripper. I feel no need to gripe about what the moderators choose to do, they put in the time that others aren't willing to,...

    It all sounds interesting to me. If used properly, it could be useful and informative info at a trailhead. The thing that bothers me is how polarizing these subjects are. If you support this, then...

    I have a Nikon D3100 with a crop factor of 1.5X. I am guessing I might need one of the smaller zoom lenses mentioned by the folks in the prior posts?

    I bought a new Nikon Dslr camera and got a 18-55 mm lens and a 55-200 mm lens. Question is, what would you camera gurus suggest I get if I were to get one more lens? I would generally be taking...

    Awesome pictures and report. I was curious to see whom might be crazy enough to hike those slides, now I know. I feel like a gigantic wuss for having hiked these peaks via the blazed trails. It is...

    Many moons ago, I was a scrawny little blond haired kid rocking an Incredible Hulk tank top. The first “real” hike I can remember was when my parents took my brother and The Hulk up to Mt Katahdin to...

    I have a fear of heights, but I didn't think it was too bad. There were a few tricky spots where I had to use all six foot two of me to reach hand holds and figure out how to ascend, but all in all,...

    It seems to me like a lot of people commenting on this may have never actually visited the falls. When you hike this trail, you most likely have climbed the Mist Trail that goes directly under the...

    Mt Marcy from South Meadows

    I would like to think that the mountain stood a chance of defeating us today, but clearly it was blindsided by the stealth Vermont contingent. We arrived at 9:30 AM, and snuck in the backdoor by...

    Skimpy barrier? I did the hike a few years back, and it wasn't the skimpy barrier that kept me out of the stream, it was a fear of plunging over the waterfalls. For the hike to be safe, it should not...
