It was a beautiful day on Algonquin, but the hornets thought so too, and kept us moving around.
Dan and Em manage to find a hornet free spot; Daniel probes for a hornet in an unwanted spot.

Center, ex-Ivy vaulters celebrate new challenges, Daniel, Dan and John...Relaxing at MacIntyre Falls on the Algonquin-Wright trail.

From Otter Chalet or Deep Woods Cabin, follow Route 86 past Whiteface, turning left onto River Drive, where the West Branch of the Ausable heads off towards the Olympic Ski Jumps. Turn left onto Route 73 towards Keene, and look for an open field on your right, framed by the High Peaks and the road to Adirondack Loj. From the Loj, trails lead out to Algonquin,  Wright, Marcy, Haystack, and other High Peaks.

Above left: Dan went up Algonquin with Steve in chilly, wet October '95 morning,
and with Wendy 2 weeks later when Winter checked-in early, and they went up without crampons..
