Traveling Town

Today the town ventured to Tupper Lake, 22 miles north.  The Wild Center opened its doors to the neighbors and visitors of the north to experience it in all the springtime glory.  Vendors, exhibits, the sun, all came out to share in the fun.

A group of LL parents traveled north and enjoyed the company and the food at the cafe.  We hiked on trails, smelled mink scents, admired Sturgeon, saw a live porcupine eat carrots and felt the ice and wondered what it would have been millions of years ago as the Adirondacks were carved out of glaciers.

The kids ate boiled hot dogs and cheez doodles.  My daughter had to pee on the Forest Preserve… sorry about that!  She peed on her pants (at least not in them) so she rode home in her car seat without… ya know… the bottoms, but she was happy to have had the adventure.

We drove by Coney Mountain and gave homage to Verplanck Colvin and discussed a future hike up that mountain.  Have to find the magical power line trail.. it’s been over 25 years since I climbed that hill on the the Tupper Road.

Then we came home to Long Lake and had a nice meal courtesy of the Pizzeria behind Hoss’s.  Thanks Jody, it was yummy.  The dogs barking, calling out saying “ruff ruff, where’s my pepperoni?”

The buds are budding and the daffodils are out… and the best part… NO FLIES!
