Summit View Maps for Four Peaks in the “Saranac Lake 6er” Challenge
Bear Essentials Apparel, 97 Main Street, Saranac Lake, is now a reseller for “Thatcher’s Peak Finders”, including their most popular deck that features the views from summits surrounding Saranac Lake.
That deck, “Thatcher’s Peak Finder for the Northern Adirondacks” identifies the summit views of ten peaks, including Baker, Haystack, Ampersand, and St. Regis Mountains—four of the best summit views in the “Saranac Lake 6er” Challenge.
“There are lots of great hiking guides for the Adirondacks”, said Greg Moore, owner of Bear Essentials Apparel, “But when you reach the summits and overlooks one question still remains: What are we looking at?”
“Thatcher’s Peak Finder for the Northern Adirondacks” answers that question. In addition to the four “Saranac Lake 6er” peaks, it also identifies the fantastic views from Whiteface and Cascade (both HighPeaks), Azure and Mt Arab (both with fire towers), Jenkins (Paul Smiths Interpretive Center) and Owls Head (Malone).
The views from these ten peaks include over 5,000 square miles of mountains, lakes, and rivers. Forty of the historic 46 Adirondack High Peaks can be seen, plus almost 200 other peaks and landmarks are also identified.
“Whether you are a new visitor to the Adirondacks or an old friend of the mountains, we think you’ll be surprised and delighted by what you can see and identify from these summits, on your way to meeting the ‘Saranac Lake 6er’ Challenge”, said Moore.
Small enough to tuck into a day pack’s pocket, Thatcher’s Peak Finders have a sturdy plastic rivet that holds the entire deck of line drawings together, allowing individual pages to simply rotate out like the blade of your favorite pocket knife. The pages’ detailed drawings are created from original photography shot specifically for each peak, so they represent what hikers will typically see without binoculars, and without distortion.
Decks of Thatcher’s Peak Finders range in price from $11.00 to $16.95.
