Calamity Brook runs for roughly five miles from Flowed Lands to the Hudson River with a hiking trail following along towards the Upper Works Trailhead north of Tahawus. As for how the waterway received its name, I haven't the slightest idea. In reference to Lake Tear-of-the-Clouds, there was another photo already on Google Earth which was placed through Panoramio. Hence, mine won't be the first. As you may know, it is the highest source of the Hudson River (fed by Feldspar Brook and the Opalescent River)...lying near the western flank of Mount Marcy. One final item, three more images have been posted though not part of the Adirondack set.
Hi Foxx Trotter. I came accross your photos, and recognized Lake Tear right away. We approached it from the south and west, as you did. We stopped to camp after I slipped and dropped my camera in the stream. All we had after that was a small throw away camera, and my pictures reflect that quality level. I just added another, taken of the Flowed Lands. It's a bit of a closeup so it may not make it into Google Earth, but I invite you to my pages for a visit.
I am interested in hiking / kayaking the full distance of the Hudson - source to mouth - any suugestions for research - planning to do it 2010
