The Beauty of the Adirondacks in October
In the Adirondacks, October 10, 2009, along Route 3. It started out as a chilly, heavily overcast morning in the Adirondacks. We were on our way up to Tupper Lake's Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks-"The Wild Center". Early in the afternoon the sun finally came out. On the way home we made a few stops to enjoy the crisp fall air and enjoy the colors. Stopping off at the Piercefield Flow, which is between Raquette Pond and the Raquette River, just north of the town of Piercefield. Later on a quick stop in the village of Wanakena. Here they have their famous foot bridge, built in 1902. In 1999 it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. This last pic shows looking down stream, even the water looks cold. Which I'm sure it was.
