Sunday Drive thru Adirondack Park Preserve

 

Today was bitterly cold with a high of 17 degrees and freshly fallen snow.

The blue skies glistening on the snow this morning demanded a drive to take in some of the scenery in the Adirondack Park Preserve. 

                         

 

Entering Adirondack Park             

         

 The mountains are calling…

 

This region is full of lakes that are now frozen and covered with snow…it is paradise for snowmobile lovers and ice skaters!                 

 Cranberry Lake

             

      

Star Lake and Beach…wanna go for a swim?  Polar Club members welcome!           

  

Many of the lakes show off the magnificent view of the Adirondack Mountain Range.

          

 Long Lake

 

There is a little town called Tupper Lake that is my favorite…it is quaint and truly beautiful.   

 

Entering the town of Tupper  

 

Serenity at it’s best!

 

Heading home the landscape seemed to change with the setting of the sun.  

  

Sunset over Tupper Lake

 

Sun falling over Crystal Lake

 

Sun shadows down the mountains

 

So much more to see…so little time…

  Bridge to sights yet to see…         

 

We saw plenty of deer along the way which is always a special treat…a Sunday full of scenery and serenity.

Be sure to visit the album for more photos and thanks for coming along for the ride.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Sunday and that you all will have a great week!

    OMGosh, what a beautiful trip! Thanks for taking us along. If all the winter days were as gorgeous as that one, I\’d have no complaints at all! Where are the ice fishermen? It looks like all the lakes are empty. Ice fishing is huge around here!
