The last half of this week, I'm going to be funny an amazing hike up in the 'Daks with my friend Gretchen. Our goal is to reach Lake Tear of the Clouds, the highest headwaters of the Hudson river, and the highest standing body of water in New York. That in itself is not a horrific hike, if you break it up into a couple days. Our current plan:
Hike into lake Colden from upper works parking lot on Wednesday. I hope to get the lean-to on Colden, but there are plenty of other places to camp there.
