On the Road: Adirondacks, part 2

Coco and Zinnia waiting for suppertime.
Love Boat.
Tennis in the mountains.
Christopher had the brilliant idea of buying at badminton net at Sports Authority on our way up to Keene Valley. Coco became particularly obsessed. 

Coco and Zach crossing the Ausable River. When I was a kid the bridges only had a railing on one side,  and one time my stepfather turned around to tell us to hold the railing and he walked right off the bridge. His leg was in a cast the rest of the summer!
The west branch of the Ausable River at 7am, just when the trout are starting to bite.

Zach, netting his first ever brown trout!

Mom and I leaping off a high cliff into cold, dark water. The following rush is worth the fear.

Zinnia, loving the porch swing.

My favorite swimming hole.
Warming up on the rocks.

Zach, graciously holding a boulder so I can pass by.
Here I am on top of Gothics Mountain. Hard to think of a place I’d rather be.

It looks like paradise. Your photos… Read more »
