It’s great to be back in the Adirondacks!  Every day is a new adventure here, with so many lakes to paddle, trails to hike, wildlife to observe.   I’m happy to share some of these photos to spread good cheer on these summer days that pass by too quickly…

CLOUDS (Large)I’ve been coming to the Adirondacks for almost 25 years now, and over that time I’ve formulated some of my own rules for enjoying this beautiful place.   One of those rules is simply this:  “If you’re afraid of the weather, you’ll never get out to paddle a lake.”  Yesterday looked like this most of the day, but my kayak kept telling me, “Float me, float me!”  So, I did!  When the lakes have whitecaps there’s always a back stream that’s calm.  So I went to one of my favorite places, the Raquette River, and sure enough, my first paddle of the season was a delight.
