On Thursday, my dad and I completed McKenzie Mountain, which then complete our Saranac 6! McKenzie was one of the tougher mountains we’ve done, and there were plenty of rock scrambles. The views from the overlooks were stunning and made it all worth it.
The hike ended up being about 8 miles round trip with over 2100 feet in elevation gain. We started about 945 am, and finished about 4. We did take our time and went slow, the weather was just about 70 degrees and overcast – perfect.
Here’s the website on the Saranac 6ers.
After finishing the hike, we went to downtown Saranac Lake to ring the 6ers bell! It was a great feeling to know I had accomplished something like this. Here’s some photos from the hike.
And here’s the photos of the Saranac 6er bell!
Next I’m going to work on the 46ers. Hopefully I’ll get number 3 done this Thursday with Big Slide!
