Back to Lake George – 28 September 2011
We had got excited about taking a side trip to the top of Whiteface Mountain, to look down on the autumn colours. Our neighbours at the campsite told us how beautiful it was. Then we discovered the snag – an 8 ft bridge, specifically to block RV's from taking the mountain road.
When we realised it was for our safety, we acknowledged the wisdom and retraced our steps to Lake George, via the forest road. The scenery was pretty good, but as the day was cloudy, it didn't look as spectacular as yesterday.
However, our lunch stop was interesting, with a board walk along the far edge of a small lake, and in easy access, three beaver houses. They were fascinating, and showed the teeth marks of the beavers, clearly on the small logs.
The only other thing of interest was a trip to Walmart, the true giant of American shopping.
