A few weeks ago while a majority of the Northeast got pounded with snow and rain, Lake George had amazing weather the entire weekend. Here are some photos I took, mostly while on a walk with my dog one early Saturday morning. Enjoy!
These chipmunks must’ve known the nice days were going to end soon, because they were scurrying all around Prospect Mountain in Lake George grabbing every acorn in sight. They let us get surprisingly close, prompting me to start setting aside some cash for a really good camera for when rare opportunities like this one comes along. Enjoy… Continue reading Chipmunks in the Adirondacks
It’s that great time of year when the leaves turn, the tank tops get traded in for hoodies and the breeze gets a lot cooler, which only means one thing – Oktoberfest! This Saturday is the Lake George Brewers Oktoberfest at the Adirondack Pub and Brewery. A ticket gets you beer tastings from numerous area… Continue reading Lake George Oktoberfest
Over the weekend, I checked out the 2009 Harvest Fest at Gore Mountain in the Adirondacks. The festival was fun, but the main attraction ended up being the $13 Northwoods Gondola ride my dog and I took up the mountain. With the trees in their fall peak, the views were stunning — and we were… Continue reading Fall at Gore Mountain

In honor of Pedigree’s Dogs Rule Day this Saturday, I decided to share some photos of my Toby, and write about why if you have the resources, everyone should bring a dog into their life. Since I was a baby I’ve been around dogs – Cisco, Zookie, Joy, Ranger, Boggie and Tootsie. I’m sure if I missed… Continue reading Pedigree’s Dogs Rule Day
Another one of my favorite places to go in the Adirondacks is The Sagamore – a beautiful island resort that literally has everything you could want in a Lake George vacation. (more on that in a future blog) Luckily, The Sagamore opens its doors to non-resort guests, so they can appreciate the amazing views, gourmet food… Continue reading Mr. Brown’s Pub at The Sagamore
Last night I got to see Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band for the first time. Yeah, I know, almost everyone in the world has seen him, so what’s the big deal? Well, for me, this was huge, and meant so much. I’ve been to tons of shows, but every time Bruce came around… Continue reading Bruce Springsteen
Some of the best views of Lake George are just a short drive up Veterans Memorial Highway to the top of Prospect Mountain. They say on a clear day visitors have a 100-mile view. For those of you not familiar with the area, you’d be able to see well past Albany, N.Y. Prospect Mountain is… Continue reading Prospect Mountain
