Redfield Mountain, October 18 2003

After a crack-of-dawn start at South Meadow, we arrive Marcy Dam

On the trail to Avalanche Lean-To

Rough trail up and around Mt. Colden via Lake Arnold

Off the official trails now, we make our way up Redfield on the "herd path". Ewart remembers it as very difficult, but it has since been cleared up with a chainsaw so the going is generally easy, though a lot of the way is in stream beds.

The Opalescent River lives up to its name: Lots of beautiful waterfalls.
