Hiking Mt. Marcy

It's hard to put into words the feelings of the last few days. Early in 2014, my wife, Peggy, and I agreed to join a group of our friends on a hiking trip in the Adirondacks.  We have always enjoyed the Adirondacks, but our past trips there have been mostly for sightseeing. This time, however, our goal was to climb to the top of Mt. Marcy.  At 5,343 feet, Marcy is New York's highest peak. Although we are avid walkers and pseudo runners, we had never hiked--not even one day of our lives!
