Out on the Trails


Amid vibrant yellow autumn leaves, hiker Scott Turner descends from Lyon Mountain on the fire tower trail Tuesday while enjoying sunny skies and mild temperatures in the Adirondacks. Turner is an Adirondack 46er and is working on completing the Adirondack Fire Tower Challenge. Lyon Mountain Fire Tower was his 29th tower with only Loon Lake Mountain Fire Tower remaining on his list. Turner, a Gansevoort local, visits the Adirondacks any chance he can. “Just the beauty, the peace and the people,” Turner said about what draws him to the area. “You meet some really great people on the trails.”
