N7UN Climb of Black Mtn, Adirondacks, NY

My winter hiking friend Joel W2TQ and I went up to near Lake George, NY and climbed up to the firetower on top of Black Mtn in the Adirondacks, NY. This site is about 15 miles NW of Rutland, VT and overlooks Lake George in NY.

This is my first attempt at using my digital camera to video some of my hiking experiences. So I apologize in advance for the "roughness" of this production...on some of these video excerpts you will need to turn your head 90-degs to the left to adequately view. Too many years as a still photographer....I learned you can't turn the camera 90-degs to get a wider perspective! Next time we'll do better....I promise.

So all-in-all this was a "10" for a winter camping experience. There was enough snow to make it fun, the scenery was beautiful, and the N7UN Winter Sled made the hike very enjoyable. I'm already planning the next winter hike into the Red Hill Firetower in the southern Catskills, maybe sometime in March!

Wow, whatta quick posting - I'm viewing this at 10:30pm Sunday Feb 8, I guess you've warmed up by now. Great pix, even sideways - glad you found the camp site, it looked like an ice palace. 73, Shirley N2SKP (QSY Society Radio Club)
