Upward, Ho!

I haven't been out in the woods much for quite a while (both the weather and my schedule have been wild), but yesterday I did manage to get out with three other guys for a little snowshoe up Mount Van Hoevenberg (2940 ft), about 9 miles outside of Lake Placid.  There was just enough snow for snowshoeing (and there was plenty of ice underneath it) as we trekked the 2.4 miles and gained 770 feet in elevation up to the summit, which gave us views toward the High Peaks.  From the pictures, you can see there was some snow in the air, too, giving hope for more winter adventures to come...
