Intermittent fog was causing us to play a game of peek-a-boo with comet NEOWISE this morning.
Our largest annual fundraiser, Seek the Peak, is just over a week away. If you want to participate or support a hiker that's participating, head over to secure.qgiv.com/event/stp2020/ ... See MoreSee Less
Awesome picture! I didn’t realize the comet was visible.
What time did you catch this? I want to try to get up and see it before it dips below the horizon.
My daughter saw the Neowise Comet over the Majove Desert two mornings ago.

A line of thunderstorms passed over the summit this afternoon. Later in the day and closer to sunset, we cleared and had fair skies across most of the horizon, except for this cumulonimbus incus to our south. ... See MoreSee Less
Aha! A cumulonimbus incus! Another great meteorologist term ! Great picture.

You folks work in a most wondrous place. I realize it's known for the worst weather, but those "good" days present beauty so unique, it's breathtaking. Thanks for sharing the photos !

The Alpinist Podcast is pressing on, but only with your support!
The latest episode of the Alpinist Podcast features alpinist and speaker Margo Talbot, who published her memoir in 2011, titled "All that Glitters: A Climber's Journey through Addiction and Depression." In her book, she reflects candidly on her struggles with addiction and depression, as well as how ice climbing played a role in her recovery. Toward the end of "All that Glitters," Talbot writes, "In my years of searching, I had arrived at my own philosophy of life, the essence of which was that existence is a precious gift, and that every moment, whether in the throes of joy or the pit of despair, is equally to be treasured." Deputy editor Paula Wright conducted this interview with Talbot at the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival in November 2019. (Margo Talbot: Maximize Mental Wellness)

Unfortunately I will never get to experience Baxter. I am a single senior lady and travel alone with my dog. No dogs allowed.
Took this gem in Baxter just last week!
Just returned from our annual Baxter trip, and it was outstanding as always ❤️🤍💙
This is on the way to Niagara Falls area
Nothing better than hiking in Baxter State Park
Now that's one tenacious tree! Beautiful!
Great shot. See you in September
Love that trail
Is this going up the Abol trail?

An oldie but a goodie. Captured in the 1920's long before OH&S, CASA, FAA and PC (political correctness) humans accomplished unbelievable feats. Stuntwoman Gladys Ingle repairs landing gear mid-air without the assistance of a harness. She would probably be jailed for attempting such a stunt these days. ... See MoreSee Less
I was thinking that it must be quite boring to sit in the jump seat after that. But nevermind, I was silly to think she might.

Can you send me the information for who took this picture? It is one of the best shots of chimney pond that I have seen.
Hopefully I can get a test 3 days prior to coming in August.
Can’t wait to get back up there for more painting inspiration!
As of this Friday, no need for tests or quarantine, depending on where you’re coming from, bub.
great capture of Chimney Pond. Thanks for the post
My favorite place to sit and reflect and watch Nature in the whole World.
I went up today. Lovely view but climb was tough, I'll come back when the elevator is installed.
A lovely place, great memories hope to get back up there again sometime soon
I look at that and think wow. Then I think wow, I got to be there. Right there!! 8 years ago. Forever etched in my memories!
Coming for the Traveler on the 10th! Can’t wait!!!!
Got to see a helicopter drop off supplies for the ranger station there back in 2018
Awesome spot to be!
When the apocalypse happens, I wouldnt hate living out the rest of my time there.
Where can I camp there with my dog?
Was there yesterday .
One of my favorite views in the park.
I'll go pack the car!
what about the trail into katahdin lake???
Lauren McClintock next time we go home during summer we are spending everyday in the woods
Want to make it here so bad this summer
Thank you for all of your hard work Baxter State Park! I wish everyone safe and happy adventures in the Park this summer!
Can you update us on 2020 Dudley plans?
Never got to see that view when I was there. :-(
Andrée-Anne Doucet, la photo est tellement belle!!! 😍

The Adirondack High Peaks Stewardship Program is focused on protecting the fragile alpine ecosystem found in the High Peaks. Summit Stewards educate hikers, conduct trail work and perform research on rare and endangered plants.
Our relationship with the @adkmtnclub and Summit Stewards program is more important now than ever. Incremental stress and pressure in the mountains continue year over year. Supporting grassroots organizations like Summit Stewards is critical to the well-being of the mountains and a broader understanding of our precious wilderness.
The Mountaineer is pleased to support Summit Stewards in partnerships with @vasquefootwear @darntoughvermont and @pinnacleoutdoorgroup
Teamwork making a difference!
Enjoy the Summer Solstice!

A couple of folks have entered the closed area and skied Tucks within the past few weeks and lots of folks entering the closed area and skiing the east snowfields of the summit last weekend. There are a few reasons to avoid skiing in Tucks right now. Add to those reasons the slots that are opening at an alarming rate due to the hot weather that the north country is currently experiencing. While moats and undermined snow are a problem in many areas with wind loaded slopes, the slots in Tucks are up to 100' deep at the waterfall holes in the Lip. There have multiple fatalities here over the decades and many, many close calls. The other slots can be deep with overhanging walls that can trap you. Please reconsider skiing anything in the Headwall area, for many reasons, but primarily for your safety.
Shout-out to the ski patrol who helped us so much this year, as every year, but is now hunkering down under travel restrictions and to @joe_soccio and @freehelon who have moved on to work at the Saco Ranger District.

Saw some loons dropping into the great gulf this weekend, the crown looked like if I breathed the wrong way it would give...
Better heade the warnings! Read not without peril to see how extremely dangerous this is!!!
Thank you. It looks like we won't be doing our annual pilgrimage. By any chance are other areas (airplane gulley, etc) open? My apologies if this is a stupid question.
Is skiing in any other area on the mountain allowed at the moment ?
They get what they ask for .. if they ski there.... they risk their lives.. so be it.... if you ask me it is suicidal to ski in that area so maybe violators should get psychiatrically examined
So much for the Whole Live Free or Die...🙄
Don't ride a motorcycle causes potholes in waterfalls and cars trucks busses dummies drunk drivers
I hope your all wearing masks and maintaining 6' between yourselves!!😂😂🤣🤣
Let them go. Go get the bodies in the summer when it's safe.
After snow thins you are also possibly damaging plants. In some cases plants that only grow here, nowhere else on earth and plants that prevent erosion
As usual the government just isn’t satisfied with just monitoring it helping hast to control everything
Went 1993! Kinda late now!
Always going to have stupid people
