Spent a few days up in the Adirondacks around Thurman, NY with family. On the first day, we headed out for some early morning hiking. We made two stops: the first was a short 1/2 mile hike to a small lake, which was a perfect warm up for both my body and my camera.
After that, we went over to the Mt. Severance trail which is about 1.2 miles long, and climbs up the 813′ mountain. It starts with going through two tunnels under the highway, then you enter the woods which shelter you very nicely from the sun (something very needed that day as the sun was very strong and it was fast approaching 90 degrees). Due to the sun and heat there was a lot of haze in the air, especially noticeable when we reached the summit.
Although brief, these two hikes were an excellent start to my Adirondack vacation.
