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:

Open google maps, find a nearby lake and type the closest road into the GPS. That pretty much sums up the last 48 hours…minus a couple of naps and a few hours of editing. We spent an incredibly low key weekend wandering about in search of places we had only ever heard about, but never had a chance to visit. These spots were some of the more quiet local secrets that just happen to be right in our backyard. For two days we drove around finding lakes we had never seen, listening to The Tragically Hip and hopping out on the side of the road to take photos of the scenery. From the Wetland Preserve at Black Pond (also known as El Dorado Beach) to a picturesque lake you would swear was in the heart of the Adirondacks (actually only about 15 minutes from the St. Lawrence River), we caught the lake fever hard…and we don’t care who knows it!
