    Leigh, I was pleased to see your story and photo of Pete on the hike. Terry and I recently paddled our two Hornbeck canoes across Blue Mountain Lake, landing at the lake trail to climb Castle Rock, where I painted. You can see the photo from the ledge in the Adirondack Almanac post about my show at the artcenter at the lake which is still up through the 15th.

    Great story, I’m adding this hike to one of my must dos next summer. So sorry to hear about your Dad’s passing. What an amazing man and he left with such a legacy and truly made the world a better place in so many ways.
