Tim is on a quest to climb all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks—He writes: “In the 1920's these 46 peaks were thought to be all over 4000' and thus the 46er designation was started. It was later determined that 4 of them are under 4000' feet and a few other different mountains were over 4000' feet but the original list was kept. To date there have been a little over 7300 people who have climbed all 46 and are thus are true 46ers. One interesting note is a person who climbed all the high peaks in Colorado (over 14000') came east to do the 46ers and found them much harder as they were much more remote and thus required much longer hikes to make it to the peak.”
Saturday June 23rd, Tim took another group of hikers with him up Big Slide Mountain, his 19th peak. Accompanying Tim were his brothers Tom and Jim, my husband Glenn, and my cousin Rick Lochner.
