This was our first Saranac 6. Its a short hike of 2 miles out and back but with the view from just below the summit Its sooo worth it.
Started out with temps in the mid 20s and overcast. As we climbed the snow cover increased and so did the ice on the trail. We figured to leave the Micro- Spikes in the car but could have used them on the decent. Spent 45 min shooting photos and talking to other hikers and began the decent. As the temps rose to above freezing the trail got abit muddy. Penny lost it a couple time but as always fell with grace and no injuries. She is a tough and true hiker. We have both never seen the view of the High Peaks from this location so that was a big treat along with a Nepal Prayer flag on the summit. Back at the car at 11:30 and decided to eat our Mountainhouse lunch ( Got to love the Jetboil) at my camp in Sabattis and give Penny the chance to see the 8,500 acres I share. Decided to spend the nite in beautiful Lake Placid, walk around town and enjoy a wonderful meal.
