Aug 30, 2017 - New Hampshire to NY

Travel day through country roads and mountains and on a ferry across Lake Champlain to get to the heart of the Adirondacks for a week.

I expect to be visiting friends from Carefree - Joan and Barb.

The trail was really muddy as it crossed lots of low-lying...

Jun 7, 2009 - Cranberry Lake

On the way back from Plattsburgh we checked out the Cranberry Lake Campground -- part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve Camping network in northeastern New York State. Our son, Eric, and his family camped there a couple of years ago, and thought it was really nice. What a beautiful place! There are no hookups, but the sites are large, level and easy to get into. Plus you can park even a 40-ft. fifth wheel right next to the shoreline! It's such a pristine lake -- clear as a bell! We can't wait to try it. We've already picked out a couple of...
