Upper Saranac Lake - Adirondacks

Had a great week of the 4th on Upper Saranac Lake with my (new to me) Catalina 22. Motored from the State operated boat ramp on the Northside of the lake to Green Island and then let the sails fly. Stayed on Little Square Bay most of the time. Due to the numerous islands, coves and curvy shoreline, I found the winds to be very shifty.
Had a little too much main sail up one day, blowing 12kts, and my outhaul came undone. Aside from that, it was well worth trailering her 200mi for the beautiful scenery and great family time.

Re: Upper Saranac Lake - Adirondacks

We were really impressed with the beauty of the Saranacs.

Trailered our skiff up there, launched on the lowest lake-- Lake Flower I think-- and went through locks to the next two Saranacs. I could see camping at one of the many sites we saw.
