My son's favorite question is, "what are we doing fun today?"
On the weekends, you would think we were visitors: we like to take advantage of the numerous activities that travelers to the region drive hours to partake in. Most of our adventures are spur of the moment, inspired by something we have read about in the events calendar, online, or through word-of-mouth from coworkers and friends. Sometimes we choose a family-friendly hike such as Cobble Hill or a walk around Mirror Lake, other days you can find us biking on random backroads outside of Saranac Lake, or camping in one of the numerous spots within driving distance to our home-base: along the beautiful Adirondack Coast of Lake Champlain, in the mountainous tract that encompasses Schroon Lake, or further west into the Old Forge area. Some weekends, we do all of the above. We are an ambitious crew that ranges in size depending on the weekend - often dragging visiting family and friends along for the fun. We love a good adventure, and admittedly I like a good deal (who doesn't?) so I can often be found whipping out my smart phone to see what's happening on the cheap. Say, 'Hi' and pose for my camera if you see us coming through - you'll recognize us by the enthusiastic 6yo leading the way!
