Moxie's Adirondack Adventure.
Grab a cup of coffee, I've a lot to share. We just got back from a fantabulous vacation in the Adirondack. I have LOTS of pictures and videos to share with you...so....in short :
Food dried and packed, van loaded with hiking and canoeing gear and off we went, headed to N.Y. state. We began by hiking a section of the Northville/Placid trail to the town of Long Lake. A three day planned hike only took us two days. Even with my little legs it was a lot of low land hiking and much easier than what we're used to. Folks say " That's why it's called VACATION!" ha! ha!
Next we canoed a wilderness waterway up to Low's Dam. Desolate....Perfect. On to Forked Lake. A State park with "canoe-to only" campsites. 87 sites, only 2 occupied...perfect,
Mid-week we did a day hike around Whetstone Gorge. Grand Canyon of the east, spectacular. And cool,breezy,perfect hiking weather.
One day of rain made for a shopping day in Old Forge and a walk in the rain out to Sagamore, the Vandabuilt "camp" HUH! We got pictures but no invite to come in?????? We even snuck in a little afternoon fly fishing on the Moose river.
Our last day we canoed a good piece of the West Branch of the Sacandaga River. It meandered in and around an incredible wetland area.
We got in lots of other little side trips as well. I just LOVE this thing they call "VACATION" Wish we could do it all the time...aaahh!!
