Pictures part 2: Campsites and buildings

At this rate, I won't be done making posts about this trip by the time I go on the next big bikeride...

A lighthouse. This was the only thing of interest we could find anywhere near our first campsite. Apparently there were some historic forts in the area. Being seasoned tourists, we didn't bother to check them out.






Man, we felt like hot stuff after our first day of hard biking. Featured here, I_tried taking a well-deserved nap. Oh, how naive we were in those first few, halcyon days -- we thought it would stay that easy forever! Alright, the first day. The second day sucked.






Lake Placid! Home of the Miracle On Ice! Which sounds like a lousy, Disney-inspired ice-dancing musical, but is in fact the name of a famed hockey game. Which only serves to reinforce my impression of professional sports.






Just a random sign near one of our campsites. I just like the color contrast in the picture. Thought it worked pretty well.






The Wild Center! A nature museum in Tupper Lake. Pretty overpriced, but hey -- nice building.






Duckies!







I cannot, with any honesty, claim that this brook "babbled". But it was reasonably pleasant to sleep next to.






More duckies!







I spent the entire trip looking for run-down farmhouses to take a picture of. For some reason, I got it in my head that this was an iconic image of the Adirondacks. This here is the closest I could find. Perhaps my preconceived notions were a bit misguided...

  1. I would love to give you crap about how slow you are updating but... I'm still not finished with china. arg.

    maybe sitting down at the computer isn't nearly as big a priority as it should be for us?

    ha ha....

    I'm feeling cocky too. but it will all hurt later.
