Great Range Trail Audio Log, Part II

The following audio log covers Monday, October 4, 2010. It was my first time hiking over three mountains in one day.
Ashamed to admit I camped above 4000ft in between Armstrong and Gothics. The spot was a level clearing already used for camping, but I try to adhere to the DEC regulations.
In this instance, I misjudged my capabilities, so I was totally spent close to nightfall. Didn’t want to risk an unfamiliar mountain with low energy in the night.
I would like to stress the importance of DEC’s regulations in the Adirondacks, especially the High Peaks Region. The area experiences heavy traffic, and without observing the rules, the fragile ecosystem would be laid bare, as Mt Marcy has experienced.
