Mt Arab

Sunday was a dark and dreary day, but not cold or stormy- so we visited Mt Arab in Piercefield. The trail is hard-packed and microspikes are perfect right now. The visibility was only about 100 feet, so the normally great views were absent. The now-retired fire tower usually offers even greater views, but not today.
This is a part of the Tupper Lake Triad and there isn't much time left before the winter challenge starts on December 20th. I have completed both, but my wife had missed the summer challenge dates by just a few days previously, so now it's in the books. For more on this trek and its history, follow this link.
