We arrived at Meadowbrook Campground around 3:00 yesterday and had camp set up in no time. After some frisbee and gathering firewood, the cook crew prepared our dinner of rice & beans burritos. A small shower decided to greet us while we were eating, but the weather has been great otherwise. The shower just gave us a chance to make sure our tarp was in proper working order.
I was awakened from my hammock by an annoying branch that mysteriously had moved right onto my nose (thanks Zach). After some delicious oatmeal, the crew packed up for their hike up Ampersand Mountain. This peak has some of the best views in the Adirondacks and some steep hiking to get there. After being around these guys and gals yesterday, I think they have enough energy to get there (see the photo ‘o the day). Check back in a couple of days for more updates and photos!
