New Jersey High Point above Lake Marcia

Coming soon!

The June 2010 trip featured a mixture of hotel accommodations and outdoor camping.  The first night started in Albany, which allowed for a quick trip up to Lake George the following day.  The next two days were spent camping at North-South Lake, south of Albany in the Catskill Mountains.  The last two nights allowed for leisurely travel back to Altoona via Reading to see Eric’s Mom and Dad right after Father’s Day.  The trip is directly summarized below, followed by individual posts with pictures and captions.  While the itinerary listed here is in the correct order, the posts themselves are in reverse chronological order, with the most recent visits at the top.

The following is a tentative itinerary, which will be updated with final pictures, comments, and captions once the trip is complete
