Snowy Mountain has been on my "to do" list for quite some time, but it always seems to get pushed off for another hike. I figured today would be a good day to head north to hike the 3899 foot mountain and its fire tower, and perhaps catch a glimpse at some early fall colors. This is a popular hike because it is the tallest mountain in all of the southern Adirondacks but even more importantly, its trailhead is located right off busy Route 30. As I pulled into the parking area this morning, there were five cars there already. Not bad for a cloudy Wednesday in late September. After crossing Route 30 to the west, I entered the woods and began my hike.
