I took the family to Adirondacks this week. We did around 20 miles with 5,000' of gain and lots of scrambling in three and a half days, bagging five high peaks (upper wolfjaw, armstrong, gothics, saddleback, and basin.) Rainy weather the last day made us decide not to climb Mt. Marcy, but we still had a great family adventure. My pack started out at 65# and finished at 47#.
