Out and About

We're up in the north country for some leaf peeping and fun activities.

Out for an early morning walk. 

Sunrise looking west . . .  

. . . and sunrise looking east.   

On to Sugar House Creamery where cheeses are handmade and aged in an underground cave.  

And look at the pumpkins around the silos at Asgaard Farm & Dairy known for its award-winning goat cheese.     

Meet Hazel :)

On the back roads the foliage was beautiful . . .   

. . . especially at Franklin Falls where my daughter and I had paddled a few years ago.

We rode the Adirondack-themed Carousel in Saranac Lake . . .

. . . where all the animals (24 of them) were made by carvers both local and from across the country. 

The fox was a favorite.

And so was the otter :)

Driving through the 'Notch' . . . 

. . . the scenery was spectacular.

The view at Whiteface Mountain Ski Area was the end to a perfect outing :)

Thanks for coming along!

Happy Fall!

  1. Thanks for sharing those fun pictures, and especially the ones of the beautiful scenery. ---"Love"

  2. So enjoyed your leaf peeping glimpses and those little pumpkins around the silos are so cute! The photo of the hills with all the trees turning seems to just glow. Looks like a stunning area to visit...we have friends who keep saying we must come for a visit - they live in Saranac Lake.

  3. What a beautiful drive with gorgeous views.
