First Winter 2003/2004 Major Snow

(Cascade and Porter Mountain Attempt)

Adirondack State Park, Upstate New York  USA

12-07-03  Photos by Kevin Heckeler using a Kodak CX4230 Digital Camera

**NOTE** -- Despite the poor conditions and being nowhere near Whiteface (our objective for that morning), breaking trail that day up Cascade for 1.25-1.50 miles through 18-36" of fresh powder was fun and a learning experience for myself and Dave.
