    The AMR permit system probably is keeping the numbers down across the park too. A lot of the noobs visiting last year have no idea what AMR actually is and I’ve noticed, while just casually talking to people in the capital district, that they think AMR = Loj = all high the peaks. Lot of people think you can’t even hike Cascade without a permit now. It’s pretty depressing.

    In the first week of July I was camping in the Adirondacks , about twenty miles from Indian lake. Day one was overcast , hot and muggy. Day two was the same . on Wednesday , as I lay in my tent, at 10 am. Thunder roared and the skies unleashed torrents of rain.
    The forecast that week was rain, hot and muggy in the mid eighties. I ended up in the cheapest motel available. Colondale , pa. Was also very hot.
