It’s good to be back home, although I say that with mixed feelings. We spent a week in the Adirondack Mountains and IT WAS INCREDIBLE. If I could buy property up there, I SO would. I have never met anyone who visited the Adirondacks and didn’t gush and gush about how wonderful it is there.
We rented a cabin in the wilds of Upstate New York. The Adirondack Mountain Forest Preserve is the largest national park in the contiguous United States, did you know that? It’s classified as a “wilderness.” We didn’t see any bears (apparently where we stayed there are more bears than any other area in the Adirondacks), but we did see deer and I did run over some honking big frogs that for SOME crazy reason were hopping across the roads in a rainstorm at twilight. Dumb amphibians.
Oh, and we heard packs of wild coyotes. They sound HORRIBLE at 3am, did you know that? I was kinda freaked.
We also visited Fort Ticonderoga, near the New York/Vermont border.
Don’t let the photo fool you, things are cool with our Vermont neighbors. :shades:
We just had a great time. I’ll have more about our adventure once I take a 15-hour nap and get my strength back from climbing Blue Mountain…. Livvy went with us and she had fun, too!
