    I meant hiking trails :P

    I dont fear bears (at least, black bears). I have done forest survey all summer long and encounter only one face to face, and there was no bad incident (he didn't ran away, so we turn away slowly)... but we never know :P, it only take 1 bad accident for rising the fear of bear (bear-o-phobia? ) to ridiculous peak (it is not a bad pun [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] )

    Where in the Adirondack's are you going? I only know the local locations in Fine, NY to get to them is a pain in the rear end. YOu would need a topo of the area, even then I still really don't think you would want to go to the big bog. It is up the top of a mountain and you must dodge all sorts of trees as big as buses. Its about 1hr hike to it.

    I don't know much of the area, and dont have much plans done neither: any trails suggestions would be great (bogs sighting is a 'secondary goal'). Have you hike any of the trails up there Nepenthes Gracilis? A good suggestion would be great [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Since i have about 6h of driving before I get in the area (starting from Quebec city), you're right on the fact that the topo map hassle would surely take too much time, since I want to try a trail which can be done within 1 day (about 10-15 Km, perhaps even 20).

    Come visit my greenhouse, surely much easier to "hike' to in your vehicle than on foot! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
