Scott Stevens

Scott Stevens grew up in Lake Luzerne, and spent much of his childhood in the outdoors, hiking, camping and fishing. After spending four years at SUNY Oswego in Central New York, he couldn't wait to get back to the Adirondack Mountains! Currently living in Hudson Falls, a day in the woods is only a short drive away, and is always enticing at the end of the work week.

Scott began his quest to climb all 46 of the Adirondack high-peaks last summer, and will continue climbing this summer, and future summers, until he reaches this goal. He also truly enjoys trout fishing, and with the countless rivers, streams and ponds in the Adirondacks, who doesn't?

Read his blog as he explores the Adirondack Mountains on day hikes, over-night outings, and fishing trips this summer. He vows to keep you in the loop as he updates his gear, plans his trips, and hits the woods! Please, feel free to comment and share posts - as he does have some experience, there is always more to learn!

IMG_8120.jpgAutumn is my favorite time of year for several reasons. The beautiful weather, some of my favorite holidays and sporting events, apple picking, and most of all, the changes that come across my favorite hangout, the Adirondack wilderness. I love to see the leaves changing this time of year. As the first frost hits and claims whatever is left of your garden, most of the trees in the area begin to transform into various shades of yellow, orange and red. And what a sight it is!
trailsign_fbp.jpgI had a great weekend sitting on the shore of a little pond nestled between Sleeping Beauty and Black Mountain. I hiked into Fishbrook Pond on Saturday evening and stayed until just before noon on Sunday. Had I known that the weather was going to be perfect and the fish were going to be biting, I would have hiked in Friday and made a weekend out of it. Regardless, I had a great time.
battenkill_flood.jpgEvery day I see more images of massive flooding, washed out roads, collapsed bridges and the destruction that Tropical Storm Irene has brought upon the area. I know that the Catskills and Vermont got hit very bad, but it kills me to see all of the towns, roads, and hiking/camping destinations in the Adirondacks - my own backyard - that have been affected by the storm.
