Ike, A really nice report. I was planning a trip out this fall but got tied up with other things...dam-it. This was a different route. I have done bothe the NPT and NFCT but not up the Cold River. Yeah, the beaver ponds were full of small brookies.
Enjoyed reading the article!

Nice to see another trip report about the ADK mtns. Are you carrying a tarp along with your bivy as well for when it rains? How was the fishing along your trip? I was in the western ADK region near Canada lakes and in the Cold River section of the NPT quite a bit this year as well, nice to see it from another perspective!

Thanks for taking us along on the journey Ike!

Really liking the photos from this trip. The fall colors are beautiful and there's some great shots of you hiking/packrafting with taken from interesting perspectives. Looks like you must've been using a low tripod like a gorilla pod or something?

Would be interested to see what your gear list looked like for this trip, including camera equipment.

I've been up in many of those areas, but hadn't seen anyone with the packraft...and fantastic photos to boot!

Try fishing rod ferrule lube/wax on your paddle next time. Any wax will do.

Great report, excellent writing, superb photography on 11/13/2013 14:07:15 MST Print View

Ike; Thanks for the great trip report. You obviously know a lot about outdoor photography. Your composition, exposures and focus are all excellent. And you obviously took the considerable extra time and effort to set up a mini-tripod and check the composition, exposures, etc. before placing yourself in the frame.
As a former magazine writer, photographer and editor I recognize and appreciate your talent. I hope you are using those skills in your career. Believe me, your talent is far above average.

Excellent Ike! Thanks for taking the time and putting in the effort to do a proper trip report. I haven't been up that way since the '70s Real enjoyable read.

That sausage does look delicious too.
