This summer, a man I work with told me about the Adirondack 46'ers. He explained that it's a club of people who have climbed New York's highest peaks.
After a lengthy procrastination, I finally got around to researching the club on the web. It was interesting to read about the group's history. In fact, the idea that there are 46 peaks higher than 4,000 feet is incorrect. Actually there are 45. Forty-three of these are Adirondack peaks. Historical intricacies aside, it was very interesting reading. I encourage you to visit their website.
