View from the top – Mt Colden

Had a great jaunt in the Adirondacks over Canada Day weekend. I took a novice and two fairly experienced backpackers on a three day trip.

Beautiful views on Sunday from 4714 feet on top of Mt Colden. Some fairly technical scrambles to the top coming from Lake Colden. Expect to put the trekking poles away!


We shot a wonderful 360 of the top using the iPhone app.

Why I own a food scale

I love to obsess over what my gear weighs. Be careful though… It can be addictive. I keep commonly used items in an archive and just copy it to make new lists.

If you see me tinkering on my iPad, chances are it is in Numbers with one of these spreadsheets.
