Adirondack Museum Store now has newest guide for Adirondack Peaks

Museum store opens Friday, May 28th with Thatcher’s Peak Finders

WEBSTER, NY - The Adirondack Museum, Blue Mountain Lake, NY, opens for the season on Friday, May 28th, and will feature Thatcher’s Peak Finder for the Northern Adirondacks for the first time in its museum store.

“We are very pleased to be represented in the Adirondack Museum store”, said Thatcher Hogan, designer of Thatcher’s Peak Finders. Now starting its 53rd season, the Adirondack Museum has long been a favorite destination for our friends and families. Their world class collections and changing exhibits reflect just about every aspect of life in the Adirondacks. And there are many unique things there of interest to hikers of all ages, including an historic forest fire tower like those that are still on the summits of Mt. Arab and Azure Mountain, two of the ten peaks whose views are in Thatcher’s Peak Finder for the Northern Adirondacks.”

Visitors to the Adirondacks shouldn’t wait for a rainy day to enjoy the museum either, there are wonderful views from the museum grounds that overlook Blue Mountain Lake and the headwaters of St. Regis River, which is the second longest river in New York. And don’t forget to stop in the Adirondack Museum store for a Peak Finder before leaving!

About Thatcher’s Peak Finders
There are lots of great hiking guides for the Adirondacks, but when you reach the summits and overlooks one question still remains: What are we looking at?

Thatcher’s Peak Finders answer that question. Small enough to fit in your day pack, Thatcher’s Peak Finders feature a sturdy plastic rivet that holds the entire deck of line drawings together, allowing individual pages to simply rotate out of the deck 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. Visit to see pictures of the Peak Finder and sample pages.
