Snapshots of the Adirondacks

We spent the July 4th holiday at the cabin and enjoyed sitting out on the deck. The weather was perfect even if it was a little hot but I finally finished reading Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. Here are a few of the places we visited . . . 

I saw this lovely Purple Flowering Raspberry on my way to the Community Garden . . .

. . . where there is lots of creativity to be found including Buddha's garden. 

There are hand-painted plant stakes . . . 

. . .  and painted rocks that make me smile :)

My daughter and I hiked the trails at Heaven Hill Farm in Lake Placid which is where she now works :)

The main building was once the home of Henry and Mildred Uihlein of the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company. It is now a conference center with beautiful gardens and adjacent community hiking trails.  

Love this view! 

My husband and I spent some time at the Wild Center in Tupper Lake NY and went on the Wild Walk for an amazing birds-eye view of the Adirondacks.  

We were definitely in the tree tops!

Back at the cabin this sunset was the end to a perfect day :)

I have lots of photos posted to my Love the Adirondacks! board on Pinterest. Many of them you've already seen but I like having them all in one place.

Have a great week!

  1. What beautiful photos. The Adirondacks is an area that I've always wanted to explore. Like on the deck of a lovely resort admiring a beautiful view in an Adirondack chair, of course.

  2. Beautiful photos. I love to see community gardens. I am thinking about joining one next year since my yard is not garden friendly. Those tree top photos are wonderful!
    Sounds like you had a nice retreat

  3. I certainly can understand why you love so much the Adirondacks ! All the pictures are beautiful.... Our French President said : "let's our planet great again"... we must preserve this kind of beauty ! yes it's true ! Enjoy and thank you for sharing !

  4. Lovely photos as always! Walking among the treetops sounds amazing - it must have been wonderful to see the wildlife and earth from such a different perspective.

  5. Great photos! Looking forward to exploring your blog more.
