In 1983, I was planning a summer PLAST camp with Roman. It was to be a 2-week hike with 13 - 16 scouts. I had hiked half of that route in 1979 but the other half was unknown to me. Kathy and I walked that segment in late spring to scout it out.....

 

Tato dropped us off on the weekend

 

The beautiful Beaver Meadow Lodge between Whiteface and Madonna. The stove was still there then.

 

Trying to recover after the first day inside Beaver Meadow Lodge. It rained, it was cold, and we were wiped.

Planning the next day's hike

 

Killing time by the fire at Taylor Lodge. Bolton Mt. was the last obstacle before us
