Adirondack search and rescue operations have been in the news lately. More than 20 people were rescued from melting lake ice in the two weeks, and four major backcountry rescues over the same period are a stern reminder of how easily outdoor recreationists can get into trouble. The big snow that’s finally arrived will mean a lot more folks heading to the woods and waters this weekend.
