22 New Slides are Reasons to Visit the Backcountry
Irene left some 22 new slides up in the mountains. That means new vistas and changed trail routes. Both the East and West branches of the Ausable were badly flooded. Stream beds, like Syles Brook, have eroded to expose previously unseen geologic history.
In the meantime, the two of us, Dave Mason and Jim Herman, have been stiring up a new conversation about the future of ADK Park. It is proving to be a very optimistic project. Take a look at it here. Our goal is to widen the scope of the conversation to include the future of the communities in the Park.
The Town of Keene has a new, greatly improved, website with a lot more information than the old one. Check it out here. I am working on changing my links from the old site to the new one. If you find links that don't work, please let me know.
