Fresh Powder

On Sunday the sun came out and we hopped in the car to see how much snow had fallen the day before. We took a drive up on the Tug Hill, stopped by Dry Hill and Sackets Harbor and found some other people who were as excited to get out in the snow as we were. What a beautiful way to end a year full of adventure. We can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!

The Very Dog-Friendly, Robert G. Wehle State Park


Mr. Jackson at the Robert G. Wehle State Park in Henderson, New York.

On an uncharacteristically warm Sunday in March, we decided to take a trip to a local State Park to let our dog, Mr. Jackson, stretch out his legs. What we found was not only a very beautiful and unique place to hike, bike and camp, but also the “dog-friendliest” park we had ever visited. Mr. Jackson began foaming at the mouth with excitement as he ran, sniffed, peed and frolicked on the thawing shores of Lake Ontario. The park’s namesake was an avid dog lover, breeder and artist who dedicated his life to sculpture, conservation and English Pointers. Boasting over 14 miles of trails on over 1,000 acres of land, the Robert G. Wehle State Park is the perfect place to spend a sunny day or rent a cabin for a week long vacation.For more information on the park, visit their website: http://nysparks.com/parks/137/details.aspx

More natural ice sculptures on the shores of Lake Ontario, however this time they are at least 50 feet above the shore. Imagine the wind and waves that it took to create that...
