Got an early start this bitterly cold March morning and headed north to the Adirondacks to get some hiking in. Drove out to Amsterdam and then took Route 30 up past the Great Sacandaga Lake to Indian Lake. The gorgeous skyline of Snowy Mountain rises in the distance along Route 30.
After leaving Sawyer Mountain I drove south to Echo Cliffs on Panther Mountain. Although a relatively short trail, it is moderately steep and leads to stunning views to the east over Piseco Lake. It was now late morning, so the sun was really beginning to warm things up to near 20 degrees.
Overall, hiked about 3.8 miles total today. Not a lot but covered too separate mountains in the beautiful Adirondacks.
