I've often heard children say, "There's nothing to do today". I beg to differ. I'd like to inspire you to do something. Anything. Read. Bake. Hike. Fish. Plant. Sail. Climb. Play. Reach. Move. Laugh. Dream; and take time to sit with me on The Old Granite Step.

Our trip to the Adirondacks Part III - a paddle in the canoe and a short hike.

I've already shown you some of the spectacular surroundings in the Adirondacks.  Our visit wasn't complete until we paddled to a favorite hiking spot.  The sky threatened rain, but we only had a short sprinkle.  The day was wonderful; full of fresh air.
A little choppy but nothing the canoe couldn't handle.
Where the land meets the lake.

A fellow paddler; albeit a kayak.
It was a quick paddle and a docking location shared by others.

Nature's fury.
A beautiful vista.

A panoramic view of the lake.
The sun was teasing us.
Mt. Marcy in the distance.  It's the highest peak in New York.

Back at the beach.

Note how the tree had fallen over but kept reaching for the sun.
The boulder resembles a cracked egg.  Again, nature's fury.

A sign that hikers were near by.

 A teeter totter.
The contrast is amazing.
Almost back for lunch.
A great day shared by friends.
