The drive along the west arm of the Ausable river in the Adirondacks provides a fantastic drive coupled with beautiful views and some fantastic fly fishing . I stopped along the roadway to take some shots of the anglers out enjoying the beauty of this area. They were catching Rainbow Trout, all catch and release.
We drove up the Veterans highway to enjoy the vistas from the top of Whiteface Mountain. The drive is fun and offers plenty of great views as you wind your way to the top. I always enjoy the tunnel to get to the elevator that takes yo up almost 27 stories to the peak of the mountain. The day can slip away as you wander around the top of the mountain, bring bug spray as the black flies are ruthless. The hike down is great with metal fencing to support and offer a hand hold through the slippery sections of rock.
Had some fun in the town of Lake Placid over the past weekend. It is an amazing place to visit and just hang out. All around you are surrounded by past Olympic days and current athletes training for one event or another. We managed to to get out on Mirror lake for some paddle board fun and swimming after enjoying the American style pizza.
