We went in search of some views from a ledge that we had read about, but we couldn't locate them. Fortunately, we had some very nice peek a boo views as we began our descent off the southeast side of the mountain down towards an unnamed pond.

Hour Pond Mountain(Adirondacks)
Met up early Tuesday morning at the 13th Lake trail head in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness with my buddy Jim Hopson and Spencer Morrissey. This was my first hike with Spencer, who is an Adirondack legend, having hiked 937 Adirondack peaks prior to today. A 46er 5 times over, and only the second person ever to bushwhack all 46 high peaks, I was really excited to do this part trail/ part bushwhack hike and perhaps gain some knowledge from him. Overcast skies greeted us as we arrived at the shore of frozen, snow covered Thirteenth Lake.
