Happy 4th of July! We have been going on hikes in the Adirondacks lately and I am feeling so inspired and excited by the beautiful nature we can experience firsthand.
We hiked the Eagle Canyon Trail off of the Fish Creek Road this weekend. It was fantastic! The moss covered boulders that look like they were just tossed here and there, the massive wall of rock, the moss everywhere, the tall trees that grow from a 6 inch crack in the cliff, the unusual mushrooms and the view from the top!!
The rapids are sometimes used for white water rafting in the fall. There are areas where rock climbers have gear pounded in the cliff. Amazing. It's a great way to spend a weekend and I have several ideas emerging to develop in the future.
I hope your 4th was just as satisfying and enjoyable as ours.
I believe the mushroom is Genus Phaeolus Schweinitzii.
