We experienced two fun-filled days of backpacking through the Adirondacks.

Our adventure began when we hiked 2.8 miles from Heart Lake to Marcy Dam. The trail was slightly challenging consisting of rocks, roots and catwalks. Once we saw the stunning lake we knew we had reached our destination. We explored the area for a perfect camping spot. We ended up agreeing on a flat, well hidden area.

After we set up camp, we climbed over rocks and took a walk around the lake. When the trail came to an end, we sat in a circle drinking hot chocolate and looking at the beautiful stars.

The next day, we hiked along Avalanche Pass that led to Avalanche Lake. We then went on a rock scramble with ladders and catwalks. The view of the lake was gorgeous. To top off the trip we ate at ADK Cafe and had Stewart’s.
