It as been raining here nonstop, so when I saw a glimmer of sunlight yesterday morning I quickly grabbed the family, packed a lunch, and we took off for the Adirondacks. Since it is already cold here (the highs were in the upper 40s yesterday) the leaves are peaking. We headed to a little town on the top of the ridge called Old Forge.
We took a Ski Lift to the top of the mountain to look at the view. On the way up we even saw deer grazing directly on the run below us. The view was amazing!! We had no idea how many lakes and rivers were in the area. The colors were so bright and beautiful.
We took a 25 min hike around the top of the mountain. The girls collected leaves and ran and jumped and just LOVED being outside. After the ride down we enjoyed the little town of Old Forge. We walked around the lake front, went into a bunch of little shops, and had dinner and a little local restaurant. It was a fantastic Fall today!!
