A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

ADK this winter

Postby champy1013 » Fri Dec 12, 2008 11:55 am

Looking to take some smaller trips this year since we did Peru last summer (and we're going to do Australia and New Zealand for our honeymoon next Christmas time)...
Any of our resident ADK experts have some recommendations for places to go this winter where you can snowshoe and get some good mountain top panoramics for some nice winter photography? My ADK gallery is dangerously underpopulated. I think I have more pictures of Alaska than I do of a park in my own state!!

Of the high peaks I would recommend:
Cascade, Phelps, two short hikes with good views
Longer hikes Algonquin, Big Slide, Gothics, and Dial (dial has 1 viewing spot)
Non 46ers:
Hurricane, Ampersand, Blue Mt., Noonmark and Snowy,

There are many other short hikes along the routes to the Dacks.

These are the more common ones I can think of off the top of my head.

As for water falls just south of Long Lake is Buttermilk Falls. Roaring brook is on route 73 and any of the falls in the AMR land is easy to get to.
If you want more info on these or others let me know.

Lake Placid would work for all but Snowy, Blue, and Buttermilk Falls.
Cascade Inn is nice, around $60.00 a night with a good restaurant on site; their rooms are nothing fancy two beds TV and bathroom.
