Adirondack Escape

Since we love to camp with our two dogs and the Adirondacks is one of our favorite haunts I thought I'd share a few of my photos from our last trip. It rained every day by the way but I still enjoyed the quiet beauty. The wet dogs in the motor home... not so much.

This is the view of the lake from our campsite. I love all the pine needles, mosses, lichens, ferns etc.

We camped right on the lake so we could launch our canoe right on site and just tie it up for the night. Of course we only got to do that once because of all the rain but we did manage to paddle our way out to one of the islands and back. The fish weren't biting so it was purely for the peace and quiet.

Then one afternoon this bright light appeared in the sky along with a touch of blue so we bolted out the motor home and headed for the woods where we knew there were waterfalls. Actually, photographing on an overcast day is most times better quality and in the case of waterfalls cuts down on reflective glare. So this is 'Secret Falls' or as the natives call it 'Death Falls. (I didn't ask)

Hope you enjoyed your mini vacation in the Adirondacks!
