Lake Placid And The Adirondacks

Wednesday: (08/21) Lou made a nice sausage egg and potatoes breakfast. We prepared to roll after showers. We were off about 0920 on I93 heading North. Then onto I91, Hwy 58. After Lowel, Vtm Hwy 58 dwindles into a gravel road. We saw a sign that said Your GPS is wrong, go back. We didn’t. We continued for a couple of miles until I pulled over to let a pickup pass. He stopped beside us an ask” You’re not taking that through the notch are you.” He explained that the road was very narrow and windy ahead. We disconnected the toad and turned around and reconnected and returned to Highway 100 turned North then onto 101 then 105. Highway 105 parallels the border with Canada. We then took Highway 78 crossing Lake Champlain and into New York state within spitting distance to the border at Rouses Point, NY. Vermont was a quick visit as we drove through today. About 1300 we stopped at a market to shop. Dawn was expecting a call then and I had a webinar. We were back on the road at 1400. We took I87, We stopped at 1600 to wait for another phone call then on to Hwy 384 then hwy 3 to our campsite at Meadowbrook State Campground. With the office closed, we found a vacant site for the night and reserved it for another night online. We went into Lake Placid for a Chinese dinner. (GPS: 44.298129, -74.075138)

Thursday: (08/22) Leftovers for breakfast. I visited the office and paid for our stay here last night. We went to the Old John Brown Farm near lake placid. He is the namesake of the song about him during the Civil War, a white abolitionist that led a raid to get arms for slaves so they could free other slaves. After that we visited the Visitor Bureau in Lake Placid for info about the area. Lunch at the Asian Buffet in Saranac Lake. I made reservations for us at Macomb Reservation, another New York State Park for Friday and Saturday. There were no spaces here at Meadowbrook. We went to downtown Lake Placid and walked the street. Very good. Leftovers for dinner.
