Blue Skies Smiling At Me

Saturday, November 2, 2013,

Irving Berlin said it best in 1926:

Blue skies smiling at me,
Nothing but blue skies do I see.

Not only was the man a musical genius but he obviously enjoyed days like this one. This was my first sight of Second Lake. It was an uphill climb getting there but just look at that view. Vistas like this are why I came to the Adirondacks. This is beautiful country. JK

Jonah’s View Of The Adirondacks

Monday, October 28, 2013,

Sometimes the light at the end of the tunnel can be quite colorful. This is the view from Stewart Brook as it passes beneath a road somewhere between Second Lake and Lake Luzerne.

These were taken about two weeks ago on the return leg of a trek that started out at Lake Luzerne. I was in the Adirondacks for a few days of vacation and kayaking. Sometimes my vacations are more work than my job. I have to admit that the scenery was much better. The weather rocked – sunny skies and mild temperatures – and Autumn’s colors were very near their peak. Every vacation should be like this. JK.
