Sleeping Beauty Mountain

This weekend we hit the road and headed up to the Adirondacks. Our destination was Sleeping Beauty Mountain for a nice 7 mile hike. The lot was relatively packed, but the numerous trails were anything but crowded. We scored some delicious apples from a tree along the trails.

There were birds and chipmunks and brightly colored caterpillars (doesn’t he look like the Lorax??) and red efts about.

After a relatively mild hike we zigzagged up to the summit.

It was very blustery but very beautiful as well on this overcast day.
