have 46 peaks over 4000 ft. Climbing them all, and registering with the ADK 46er Organization
, makes you a "46er".
The Marshall Brothers
, famous in the Wilderness Movement
, and Herb Clark (their mentor) were the original three 46ers in 1918.
The ADK 46er Organization
was started in the 1920's and maintains an ADK Member Roster
in which I am #3031, after climbing all the peaks with my brother-in-law and friend David Bender.
My Dad started taking us to the Adirondacks when I was a small boy, which is how I developed a love for the region.
Unfortunately, my serious photography days came after my 46er climbing days, so I lack good quality images from that period.
But, happily, recent trips have afforded some opportunity for photography. I hope you enjoy these images.
