    Today we took a trip to Lake Placid to see some minor soccer games, after that it was Saranac Lake,Tupper Lake and Wanakena New York where we at at the Pinecone.

    Most of the pics are from the riverside of the restaurant, leaves were nice but we had lots of fog and clouds.

    I added two pictures, the ski jumps in Lake Placid with the second picture of the soccer field with the mountains in the back.

    I think if we take up a colletion we could get enough money that iskiatomic would take on the ski jumps, maybe a gross of beer just for his own safety.

    We traveled through the Adirondacks a few weeks back, this is the Wildlife Center in Tupper Lake.

    Zap, it appears you have much better color this year vs last year. It appears to be only slightly ahead of our colors. It is weird here as most of the soft maples are beautiful red yet others are totally green. Sassafras are beautiful too.
