    My sons and I went up to the Eastern High Peaks for our second backpacking trek with Irene more or less on our tail driving up from Maryland. We started out on Sunday and were met by a Ranger coming out who warned us of how the mountains would affect the storm. We took his advice and am alive today because of it. When we went back on Monday after a stormy night in Newcomb, the road was being cleared of downed trees. It took us 6 hours to hike 4 miles that first day as the suspension bridge was gone. We passed shelters with sand in them from the high waters and one with a 3′ diameter downed tree next to it.
    We never saw anyone else other than one hiker and upon hiking out on Friday, we found out the entire Eastern Peaks region had been closed that Tuesday to anyone starting out and we had been the only people in there legally most of the week. We also met the same Ranger who told us about the Keene Valley and his part in rescuing people from the second floors.
    I am hoping the towns have recovered by this time and my thanks go out to that Ranger.
