On Long Lake And Our Area...
Bernice Ende is midway through an 8000 mile, two and a half year international horseback ride from Montana, through New York State, the Adirondacks, including Long Lake and she is on her way north to Ogdensburg where she will have the horses vetted for clearance to start her journey across Canada and eventually to the Pacific Coast.
I catch up with Bernice as she arrives in downtown Long Lake. We communicated in February about her visit, but she doesn’t travel with cell phone or computer, so it was anyone’s guess when she’d get here.
This Lady Long Rider travels with two horses, Essie Pearl, a 15 year old Norwegian Fjord mare and Montana Spirit a 7 year old Norwegian Fjord, Percheron mare. She traveled into Long Lake on Monday, April 13th after wintering in Fort Edward and making overnight pit stops in North Creek and Minerva. She started traveling after the winter weather started to recede. She is traveling slowly, easing back into her routine having taken a few months off during the winter season. She anticipates traveling about 20 miles a day and picking up her pace as she regains ... Read more
It’s been a long winter, a cold winter. Many places in and around the town had frozen pipes, Joe and Keith from the Water Dept have been out with a variety of methods to help the neighbors unblock the frozen water. There was a water main break in Raquette Lake and they had to cope with boil water notices for a stretch of time, but it all got fixed as fast as it could. These water crews have been out in epic sub-zero temps for sometimes 18 hours a day. They always pull out the stops and make things work, when they can and my hat is off to these guys for doing what they do. It hasn’t been easy, who can predict the frost line and how it’s going to wreak havoc on plowed driveways and un-snowcovered areas.
We got a few day of the teasing sunny melting day spring is almost here kind of day. Blue sky, while driving through town at lunch, observing salty trucks idling on the side of the roads neighbors chatted up with neighbors and yup, I saw actual smiles on their faces. In March, literal smiles. Folks were so happy the sub-zero had disappeared.
Here’s another infamous phone booth foun ... Read more

Snowmobile Riders traveling between Raquette Lake and Forked Lake to Long Lake are being asked to use the existing designated snowmobile trail connection marked with red markers and directional signs to exit Raquette Lake to North Point Road. The canoe carry south of North Point Road is closed to snowmobiles.
Please see the map and photos so you know what you will be looking for. Thank you to Hamilton County Highway for cutting back the banks along North Point Road. Sleds can then access the canoe carry from North Point Road to connect to Forked Lake.

A brand new reality show aired on the Animal Planet last night and the program featured remote property in Long Lake, NY. It was very exciting for folks who love Long Lake NY to see this little corner of the world showcased on national tv. New people would learn about the region, the unintiated will come visit!
But as far as finding Long Lake fact-checkers had to clarify the location as it was mis-stated on the show. Long Lake, NY is in the Adirondacks and not along the Appalachian Trail. Long Lake, NY is five hours north of NYC, three hours south of Montreal, three hours east of Syracuse.
It wasn’t the only mistake/fact misstep this week. Long Lake Tourism had clips on a weather channel video and it said Long Lake is located on the inner part of the ocean. Sometimes things aren’t always correct. But we love the coverage anyway!
Long Lake NY is 449 square miles of lakes and mountains, snowmobile trails, and woods and waterfalls and campgrounds and fishing and memories. Long Lake is in the heart of the Central Adirondacks located on the crossroads of NYS Routes 28N/30. If you go to C ... Read more
