Weather, Flying and Fall Foliage Updates

Our weather forecast for this week improves for the 2nd half of the week, into the coming Columbus Holiday Weekend. Due to the extended wet weather we’ve been experiencing, we’ve gotten over 9 inches of rain last couple of months at the airport, I will not be scheduling any flights until the end of the week to allow our flying area to dry some before we head out to fly.

So, with another wet weekend for the first weekend of October, wifey and I headed north on Sunday to check-out the fall foliage. We took 87 north to exit 29, North Hudson where Frontier Town use to be, and headed west on Boreas Rd, County Hwy 2B, through the Blue Ridge toward Newcomb.

A view on 84 on the drive toward Newcomb. The foliage is somewhat muted this fall.

At the end of Tahawus Rd, looking toward Adams and Allen Mountain with Mt. Marcy in the clouds.

A deserted beach on Harris Lake.

The view just south of Indian Lake, of Adirondack Lake at a pull-off on Rt. 28.

We stopped for a late lunch in North Creek at Trappers Tavern.

A bowl of stew for me and a smoked chicken salad samich w/fries for wifey, and a good micro brew. All were very tasty.

North Creek is a small, unhurried Adirondack Mountain Village, with some interesting things to check-out. Follow the highlighted links for info on the places we visited on this drive – Tahawus, Long Lake, Indian Lake, and Trappers Tavern.
