Autumn in the Adirondacks

Well, no sailing pix here and no wind but a great day to be on the water in my guideboat. Thirteenth Lake.

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

I grew up in Boston, nothing like a nice fall day with the foliage in full swing. Thanks for the pictures...

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

My favorite part of the world at my favorite time of year. I had a trip planned for next week, but had to cancel because of the government shutdown.

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

Not sure which is prettier...the scenery or the boat!

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

Thanks. It's a boat I built a couple of years ago. Is a traditionally planked, copper nail clinched construction (not a strip plank), built with West System. There are hundreds of hours in building one of these. Each 3/16" plank is fitted and lapped flush to the next, glued and nailed.

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

I can relate. Sailing on Lake Champlain the past 3 days (ok busted, I played hookey on Monday) has been spectacular. Mid-70s temps, light wind (but enough to move), spectacular foliage colors, and the lake virtually to myself. I'm not sure I'd prefer anywhere else in the world over the last 3 days.

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

It has been a pretty mild fall so far, which usually enables a colorful (or colourful if you prefer) foliage season.
The Adirondacks region certainly is a beautiful place.
Thanks for the pics Smurph.

Re: Autumn in the Adirondacks

What a beautiful boat!! That you built it yourself is impressive. Fall is such a great time to be in the Adirondacks. I have many fond memories of Blue Mountain Lake.
