Part 2 of my short Mountain Vacation

Going between old forge ,Inlet, and Blue Mnt. Lake NY, can get challenging  at times, and fall being one of the times, especially if they decide to lay new asphalt. but, it was all good , we dealt with it ,with a positive attitude.

one of my favorite stops.. Raquette Lake
one of my favorite stops.. Raquette Lake,NY. we usually get on the boat you see over in the corner,  and take the ride, and learn about the all the Important people.. from back in the day.. Important ,powerful and very very rich !!  but im gonna pass that by this blog:)
like stepping into another era... this box of a building sits on Raquette lake, offering a small grocery store, the post office and... over favorite place... of course
like stepping into another era… this box of a building sits on Raquette lake, offering a small grocery store, the post office and… over favorite place… of course  the TAP ROOM.  its crazy kool, like you cant imagine.  they do serve some bar food, and there’s a juke box, and all the Raquette(ters)…lol…i don’t know what they call the people who live here, but they can sure tell some good stories. and they are all to ready to tell you ..probably the biggest fish tale you’ll ever hear. . we always stop in when we r here. but it was too early this day
a quick ride back to the other end... Old Forge... they have the biggest  hard ware/five&dime store you'll ever find. another haunt of ours

our Columbus weekend getaway

the Adirondack Park  are about a 3 hour drive for us.,  a bit of Geography before i start with my photos.. and oh boy do i have photos.  i love going to the Mnts. .. at certain times of the year.. well 6 months out of the year to be exact.  when there’s no snow..to be any clearer:)  this time of year its great for leaf peeping the colors are extraordinary

this Mnt range  form a massif in the northeast of Upstate New York. the Mnts form a circular dome pattern of about 160  miles in diameter and about 1 mile high the current relief owes much to glaciation (wiki) there’s much History on these mnts. I’ll get into that when we reach the Museum …some time this week.

excuse the glare. when we go for a short week end we usually just stay on route 28 and go anywhere between old forge and blue mnt. lake. and stay in Inlet, which is in the middle

this lake stems around parts of old forge all the way over to parts of inlet, and we always take the back road (south shore ) to see wild life. and we have too, bear, and deer of course, but all in all the years we’ve taken back roads we have never seen a moose:(

it stated out the day from hell, we should be use to that nothing ever goes well for us on vacation. our  C.C was compromised , most likely happened the last time we were in Fl.!!!  needless to say My Husband now hates that state!!

a little strip of Inlet NY. this town is always bustling we got in before the crowds , Columbus week end is a biggie here, most of the places shut down the day after. till the snow flies, then its time for snowmobiles and other winter activities.. that’s when you’d never find me in these parts
and that will do it for this leg of my journey , ill be back in a few days, if you stopped by, i hope you enjoyed the visit. and come back real soon,
