Photo Theme: Your First Adirondack Hike!

We haven't had one of these in a while. So here we go: post a picture of yourself from your first ADK hike. Or if you're one of those ancient people, the oldest picture you have of yourself hiking. Let's see how much you've changed!



This is from my first hike up Giant mountain in 2006. I was wearing water shoes, a cotton t-shirt, and a school bag. Not to mention I was showing more skin than usual. And that must of been a tough apple....

My first ADK hike was Pilot Knob when I was about 10 years old, don’t have a photo of that one.

This was my first High Peaks hike to Cascade in May 2006. I didn’t even go to Porter - wasn’t a peakbagger yet, no list, no spreadsheet. It was a bluebird day and I fell in love, I wanted to go visit all those mountains. Cotton shirt, no backpack (but the dog has one), white socks with abundant ADK mud was prolly not be the wisest choice. That was an awesome day.

I have no idea where I got that goofy hat from, but I'm sure glad I lost it. In my own defense - it was raining.

Wakely Mountain last May 2011.



Oh and Neil...you may want to consider treating your water before you drink it (Nice avatar)

Been hiking in the Adirondacks for a long time, but did not have a digital camera until 2007 (and rarely took people hiking pics with my old SLR). This is from Cascade in August 2007...#2 of 46.

Sadly, I didn't take many pictures in 1986, the first year I started hiking in earnest, but here's one from October, 1987.


For comparison purposes, this one is July, 2010.

I don’t have a picture of myself from my first hike in the Adirondacks

but I did get a snapshot of someone I passed on the trail that day.


She wasn’t giving an inch, I had to go around.

Somewhere there is a Kodachrome slide from my first ADK hike, Bald Mt. circa 1960. I don’t remember it, but I remember being told about it. I’m sure my father carried me most of the way up.

Here’s a picture of me and daughter #2 on Sawyer Mountain, circa 2000. Not her first mountain, but the first one she walked a good part of the way up.


……..and another shot of us last week.

My father, me, and one of my friends at Marcy Dam, May 6, 1995. This was my first hike in the High Peaks, but not my first in the Adirondacks.

My first trip to the Adirondacks was the year after I broke my hip - 2005. We hiked Mt Arab and Mt Jo that weekend - had a little more hair and few less pounds then. This shot was on Arab...

My first hike was up Mount Washington on October 8, 1977. I wore contact lenses then, instead of eyeglasses.

This is in Tuckerman Ravine.



Here I am climbing Mount Washington for my fourth time, 30 years later (October 6, 2007), with my son, Cameron.



My first hike in the Adirondacks was in 1983, when I climbed Giant Mountain (my second Northeast 4000-footer). Those photos are among my slides somewhere in my bedroom closet. Here I am on Cascade with Cam on August 12, 1998, when he and I and my ladyfriend, Susan, climbed our first High Peak together. This was the hike on which I contracted the peakbagging bug.



This was the next day, August 13, 1998, when we climbed Giant so that we would each have two High Peaks under our belts and boots.



Eleven years to the day after this last photo was taken, Cam finished his 46.

Any large universities near you? Libraries on college campuses will often have archival equipment, including scanners, that are available to the public to use for free.

At Paul Smiths we have one in the library- it's designed for general public use and sits out by the photocopier. You just place the item you want scanned on the surface, set the options (b/w or color, resolution, etc), and it scans it for you. The image can either be immediately emailed to you, or you can save to a flash drive on the spot.

I believe it also can scan books (with an automatic page turner) although I've not used this feature.
