With the craziness of remote learning and ever changing regulations, my husband and I thought my grandkids and daughter could use a break. Where else but our beloved Adirondacks? I found a cottage on First Lake outside of Old Forge online and we went there for a couple of days. A day of rain was ok. The beech trees were so golden this year and there were still remnants of glorious colors. Early morning fog is even beautiful. The cottage was just right and clean. The kids- 10, 8 and 2 had a grand time and my daughter got a break from teaching college chemistry.
I know there are gorgeous, magnificent places around the world, but I have this deep satisfaction from breathing in the air of the ADK and gazing at it for long periods. Grateful we could go for a couple of days.
