The article presents the author's reflection on his experience of exploring the Adirondack Mountains during mid-year. According to the author, when ascending the mountains, the botanical world around him changes. He feels that he is in a sense of going backwards in geologic time for conifers appeared before deciduous plants. The author added that traveling in the area during mid-year challenges the seasons.
