A treehouse glows in the dark under Adirondack skies, and the Milky Way takes shape overhead.
We recently had the opportunity to spend 10 days and nights in the Adirondack Park relaxing under the stars. There certainly is plenty to do in the Adirondack Mountains; fabulous museums, extreme sports, hiking, climbing, competing, shopping, eating…you get the idea, we however, did none of these things. Instead we kicked our feet up and spent ten days unwinding and catching up with some great friends and family. We covered a lot of ground from Lowville to Inlet, visited a real Adirondack Great Camp, wandered around some of the local towns, and took time to appreciate the details. Of course we never travel anywhere without the trusty camera, and after a midnight encounter with a concerned neighbor, we began choosing our night photography locations a little more carefully. All in all, the trip was a success, and we returned home feeling rested, rejuvenated and ready to edit all of the photos we took. Here are some of the highlights:
