Arriving at Jabe Pond 2015

We arrived at camp to find the parking lot full of forest rangers. Turned out their was a forest fire on one of the hills surrounding the pond. The forests were so dry with the lack of rain. Even the pine trees were starting to look yellow. I could see how it could easily catch fire.

Luckily, they got it out and we didn't die.

Not So Gay Old Time At Gay Camp

We went to Jones Pond for the weekend. I like the facility and the nature but most of the people we met were really lame and bitchy. The people we met last week already had rumors about us. I guess the drama is what you would expect for a gay camp. I got tired of being treated like I was 15 because I wasn't 65. People would say things like, "when you grow up you'll be able to afford a trailer and not need to camp in a tent."

Canadaway

After half a lifetime I made it back to Canadaway for camping. I have no idea why I didn't come back sooner. The place is so pretty and leantos are awesome. For the longest time I couldn't find where it was until I rediscovered an old hiking book I had that marked it back in February of 2012 (e:paul,56022). Then we forgot to go back.

Here are the directions

(e:yesthatcasey) got a head wound my smashing his head on a nail in the leanto. He kept trying to avoid me getting a pic of it, so this is all we got.

Tennesee Camping

On the way here the weather was amazing. Once we got here it changed to cold, rainy and windy. We ended up still going hiking.

The ground is made up of light brown clay shale and tons of rocks. I can imagine trying to farm on itm. Nothing like the amazing fertile top soil we have back home.

Our cabin is in the middle of the forest at the top of a mountain. From the hiking trail you could see the larger cabins at the main resort. I tried to get a pic but the camera kept focusing on the trees.

I had no idea before but we are in the same town as Dolly Parton.

Jones Pond

Camped there for the night with (e:mike) and (e:libertad). It was mikes first tenting trip ever. The theme was cowboys and Indians. Spend the night dancing and the day lounging poolside. I would totally go back. My neck wishes I had remembered my pillow last night.

Jabe Pond 2012

It was such an amazing, peaceful time full of swimming, grilling and running around naked in the forest like a bunch of monkeys wrestling trees to the ground for fuel. I wish I could have stayed another week so bad. Maybe next time. Someone posted a great video of the road up to jabe

We had one really rainy storm that was borderline terrifying but it was beautiful most of the week.

The water was so crystal clear and amazing. It was the perfect combo of warm when it was cloudy and cool and cold when it was too warm in the sun.

Can you eat the clams from the adirondack lakes? I have never seen this kind in stores before. Many of the shells were pitted, I think it may be caused by acid rain. UPDATE: they are mussels are they are an endangered species. Here is an insteresting story of their past

Camping on our way to the adirondacks

Stayed at a state park along the way to the Adirondacks. The place is called Fillmore. They have an interesting swimming hole from a dammed up spring and nice bathrooms. Can't wait for more rustic conditions.

Canadaway Creek Leantos

After 17 years I found the book with the directions and we hiked out. Should make for some nice camping later in the season.

I don't remember there being a bathroom before. I also thought there was more brush/tree between the leantos and the water. Maybe its just tall grass that has been cut down.

There were so many old carvings on the leanto walls. I can't believe we didn't make any.
