Adirondack Mountain Club

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adirondack_Mountain_Club

The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1922. It has approximately 35,000 members. The ADK is dedicated to the protection and responsible recreational use of the New York State Forest Preserve, parks, wild lands, and waters; it conducts extensive conservation, and natural history programs. There are 27 local chapters throughout New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts.

A Bit of Johns Brook Lodge History

One of the two ADK owned lodges is in the town of Keene. Johns Brook Lodge is 5 miles up the brook from the end of Interbrook Road. It was built in 1925 on a spot that had been occupied by Mel Hathaway, guide turned hermit and squatter. It has been open for over 50 summers for hikers headed up Marcy way who wish to sleep in a bed or eat a kitchen prepared meal. Hut boys backpack the supplies in, though the heavier materials such as fuel tanks are snowsledded in the winter before.

Half A Minute by A Thawing Mountain Stream

Let the video speak for itself. Clip taken by Bob Thomas on March 23, 2008.

This was taken with very simple equipment, a Kodak Easyshare V610 camera, which is actually a digital "still" camera but with a video feature.
