Spring in the Adirondacks

My dog is a big fan of the Adirondack Spring!

Happy Spring!!

Spring is my favorite time of year in the Adirondacks, even more so than summer. There’s just something about Spring that makes me smitten.

Businesses, whose doors were shut all winter start unlocking, boats start to come out of dry dock, tourists start trickling back into town and the gates blocking Veterans Memorial Highway, the road that leads up to the top of Prospect Mountain, open.

It’s like an awakening — a new beginning. What happened last year, or season as we in the Adirondacks like to say, doesn’t matter. It’s this year we have to plan for — a year with new memories just waiting to be created.

The weather of course, is just the best. Not too cold and not too hot, but a perfect balance of jeans, skirts, flip flops and hoodies for those cold nights around the fire.

Spring brings the chance to start planning this year’s garden with the anticipation of creating home-cooked meals with friends enjoyed around the picnic table with a refreshing glass of Adirondack Winery wine on a warm day.

It means finding new places to take my dog kayaking, that Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing is almost here and spending Sunday mornings sipping hot coffee from Cafe Vero while sitting on green Adirondack chairs in Shepard’s Park.

What do you love about Spring where you live?

  1. My favorite is to watch the peach trees start to bloom in the Blue Ridge foothills. We're in SC so there are plenty of breathtaking sites, but the peach trees and their promise of delicious peaches takes the cake!
