Your Haystack mountain looks a bit like my Teide in Tenerife, don't you think? :-)

Yes, it does in a way...except that that Mount Haystack isn't a volcano. ;0P The mountain itself is one of the more difficult ones to climb in the Adirondack Range. Therefore, Mount Haystack receives fewer visits than others from casual hikers.

Mount Marcy is the highest point in the Adirondack Range as well as New York State at 5,344 feet (1,629 meters). I hiked to the summit back in July. It took me much longer than expected to get there, about eight hours from the trailhead...around 10 miles (16 kilometers) one way. Many of the Adirondack High Peaks Region photos I have on my Panoramio site were taken from the summit of Mount Marcy. Below is a link to my personal site at a closer view of Mount Marcy alpine summit from Schofield Cobble. If you look closely near the center of the image, you'll notice yellow blazes on the mountain which mark the trail to the top.

Thank you very much for the information Foxx. I've had a look at your page and I enjoyed it a lot, I'll love to explore the whole cave. There are fantastic Photos, very impressing!! Greetings from Switzerland, May

Congratulations on summiting Marcy. I've been there twice but haven't converted photos to digital. So I be putting them up anytime soon. The peaks arre surround by so much 'wilderness'. Our first hike up to the top was 28 miles round trip! Well worthwhile, though. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. :0) I probably won't go quite as far next hike...most likely to Mount Colden. I'd like to hike to Algonquin Peak, but that'll take about as much time as going to Mount Marcy not to mention a bit more difficult climb. This weekend, I'll be going to visit relatives in Alabama. I may stop by Table Rock State Park in South Carolina along the way, as it's not far from my travel route by Interstate 85. Nearby Sassafras Mountain, the highest point in the state, I heard is not worth the hike as it's a relatively easy climb and not much of a summit...just a USGS marker on top. Either way, there should be some decent fall foliage during that time.
