A place this full of history needs people to tell its stories, which is why we are fortunate enough to have a rich supply of historians, songwriters, and storytellers.
My adventures in car camping days began a few years ago . While paddling on a local lake, I encountered a friend paddling with other people from the Albany area. I was all ears when they told stories about their camping excursions, and consequently they invited me to join them. I did a couple of nights with them that summer with borrowed equipment. Now with my own equipment I camp with them four or five times a summer at various New York state campsites. In October of each year they get together to decide campgrounds they want to book; I just go with the flow!
As many of you know, our beloved museum in Blue Mountain Lake has undergone a lot of changes in the last few months. They have changed from The Adirondack Museum to Adirondack Experience, the Museum on Blue Mountain Lake. While the old name was pretty straightforward, the new name really gives you an idea of what they are hoping you will take away from your visit — the Adirondacks aren't just a place, but an experience.
Spring fever... cabin fever... Call it what you will — I'm feeling it!
We've had a fantastic winter season, but lately we've had a lot of warm temperatures and rain, usually followed by plummeting temperatures and snow. It's making me stir crazy!
I'm ready for flip flops and tank tops, hikes and beach days. But in the mean time, I'll make the best of what I have.
Fun with Friends
There is so much to do here in the Adirondacks, what better way to experience it than with friends??
