I went camping for 2 nights (arrived Friday, left Sunday) up at the Wilderness Campground at Heart Lake in the Adirondacks.



Here are photos from the campground and my campsite:



Spoiler



I arrived on Friday and set up camp. It was around -10C.





Snow depth was 2 to 3 feet.






Saturday morning got to around -15C, and Sunday morning around -20C. My gear handled it fine:

















On Saturday I climbed Wright Peak on my own, an elevation gain of about 2500 ft or 750 m. The peak is 4500 ft AMSL.

Near the base starts around 2000 ft AMSL:



Near 3000 ft:



Finally put on gloves and the puffy coat near 3500 ft (below). It's not about toughness: even at those temps, climbing generates a lot of body heat so wearing as few layers as possible for as long as possible prevents sweating which can be dangerous if it suddenly becomes windy. That's why I had the bare hands and short sleeves above.



Near 4000 ft:





4300 to 4400 ft, the tree line:













I went a bit further so I could see the summit clearly, but didn't make it all the way due to poor conditions and inexperience. Last 50 feet or so I just left out.

Avon, Farmington Area in CT

Derrin House 1810. RT 167

https://historicbuildingsct.com/derrin-house-1810/





Horses enjoying the Spring Like day in the upper 50s





1865 Pine Grove School House.
https://www.avonhistoricalsociety.or...ine-grove.html





Check out this area. What was once dense woods with a ton of Pine trees they build roads and homes. Loving those lanterns!





This place must stay like 10 degrees cooler in the summer with the canopy of trees and shade.





Not sure the size and acres of this place but you can drive around for a little bit and get lost.
You can tell you were still within the development by the lanterns
No speed bumps too!





Close up of one




Just checked... 500 Acres

Awesome story and trip! Love the temp and altitude mentions.


Looking at the sounding from the Balloon launch over Albany confirms your temp and altitude or close to it. At 5000' it was -14.5°C morning of the 5th. -17.9°C on the morning of the 6th. That was some intense cold. Impressed your gear held up. Must be expensive gear?


Love the snow shoes!


Any wind up there? I think Friday the 5th had the strongest winds as the air pushed in.


I saw the snow squalls on radar those days and knew the visibility was blocked in the mountains there. Upper Low was overhead!


This is my favorite pic of the bunch.


Spoiler



There's a webcam at Whiteface Mountain 1 hour north of where you were. I always check it.

Nope, mostly cheap stuff that I got from Amazon and Walmart after careful research. Here's the sleeping bags I used:

https://www.walmart.com/ip/High-Peak...g-Bag/47087279
https://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountain.../dp/B00GZH4CT2

I put the smaller inside the bigger one and then put them on top of a $35 cot to suspend myself off of the cold ground. Was a bit too warm at 0F so I had to unzip a bit in the middle of the night.

Same with my parka, a cheap $35 one from a Yellowknife Walmart but it's a good one that effectively breaks strong winds.


I bought the tent for $230 but the price went up in the last couple years: https://www.amazon.com/ALPS-Mountain...306037361&th=1

Those snowshoes were rentals from the Adk Loj. Yeah there were some decent winds near the summit. It was around 0f but wind chills close to -20f. Yeah lots of squalls up there, but thankfully not total blockage of the view downward. Cool webcam, looks useful to check hiking and skiing conditions!
