Kane Mt.

Posted by Old Dog New Tricks, 21 October 2012 · 1191 views

Our adventure Saturday was a new experience for Deb and I. "Bob the Body Builder" is a trainer at the local fitness center that we have hired from time to time. He is a energetic young man that likes to change things up for his clients. There were 8 of us and we climbed Kane Mt. in the southeast corner of the Adirondacks.

It was listed as a moderate climb and was only .8 of a mile long with an elevation change of about 2000 feet. Moderate????

There is an abandoned fire tower at the top, along with the observers cabin.

This was last manned in 1987 and is one of the remaining towers still maintained by the state. The challenge is to climb to at lest 23 of the abandoned fire towers.

One down 22 to go.

After the descent we decided that we needed some more exercise. :huh: So we hiked out to Nine Corner Lake for another two miles that was no very level itself. I did get some nice shots of streams along the way.
