Fall Hike

Since we didn't get the chance to hike any mountains this summer I was thrilled to take the opportunity to take dad on his first Adirondack mountain hike last weekend when the folks were up for a visit.
We had beautiful weather, daytime temps in the mid-70s, and mostly sunny. Of course we hiked in the morning when it was a bit cooler. We went to our 'local' small peak - Silver Lake mountain. As you can see in the photos we are in the middle of peak leaf color. The trail was only muddy in a couple of spots but all the leaves and pine needles made it a bit slippery.
We were the only ones on the summit but a couple of other groups were coming up the trail as we were heading back down.
