While escaping the busy streets of New York City, I headed north for a day hike in the Adirondack State Park. Being an avid hiker, I decided to venture on my own and quickly realized why you should always hike with a buddy. Aside from the safety, any bustling of leaves can send shivers up your spine when you're out on your own. As I rounded this turn to head toward the summit of Gothics, this feeling I had felt for most of the hike materialized in the scenery. I stopped and set up my camera on a rock, then ran into the shot to portray how I had felt throughout the day.
