Five on the fifth: Adirondacks NY

See The State Of The Nation UK for more on Five On The Fifth, where one takes 5 pics on the fifth of the month and publishes them online.

On September 5, 2009, I happened to be not in my usual Montreal, but hiking in the Adirondacks, from Marcy Dam past Avalanche Pass and Colden to the base of Mount Marcy.

That night I camped high in the mountains, far from electricity, with no option to post pictures, which is why I'm posting this rather after the fact. I suppose you might even call this 5 of the 5th on the 22nd, except that wouldn't sound so snappy.

For technical reasons beyond my ken, I can't get the captions to display in the desired place (below each picture) so here they are in one list:
  1. View from Marcy Dam.
  2. In case you wondered why it's called Avalanche Pass.
  3. Cedar growing straight up out of a cliff at Colden Lake.
  4. Full view of said cedar. Note also the boardwalk over the lake.
  5. Colden Lake, after we reached the end/tip.

Hey dude!

The next "5 on the fifth" is a few days away and you are very welcome to take part again. You can either take 5 random pictures of anything that happens to you on the 5th of November or perhaps go for my suggested theme. This month, I thought it would be interesting to take 5 images with the same theme...

"Colour" (or "color" for the USA and Canada!)

This could highlight some of the colourful items and places that catch your eye on the 5th. I hope that you will be inspired take part this month
