Senior camper Alex B finished his Adirondack 46ers Thursday on Skylight Mountain, the fourth highest peak in New York.Alex46_2

He was joined by section friends, along with his brothers.  “It was a great day, the weather was perfect,” said Pok-O-MacCready’s 391st, and latest, camp 46er, of a long hike that included climbs up Gray Peak, and Mt. Marcy, the state’s tallest.

As per tradition, Alex chugged a jar of baby food on the summit.  “It was chicken and sweet potatoes, but I really couldn’t taste the chicken, just the potato.”

As for the best part of his special day, Alex was nostalgic:  “My favorite thing was stopping to wait, and reflect, right before reaching the top.  I looked at all of the other mountains.  Each one carried its own memory.”
