A Day in Lake Placid

 Last week Richard was on holiday so we took a day trip across the border to Lake Placid, NY.

 First stop was a sign with my sister's name. Actually Mt. Marcy is the highest peak in the area!

 Lake Placid was colder than I thought...I should have brought a hat! No snow at home but snow in the hills (duh, Ronna!)

 Lovely old theatre that the folks in Lake Placid are trying to save.

 Gorgeous blue skies. We walked back and forth through the town and checked out the architecture.

 Love this artful shot that Richard took.

 Walking by the lake...
 Whiteface Mountain I think. You can see the ski trails on it.

 Richard liked the signs.

Some of the lakes further along were frozen. Very pretty.

 Back in Lake Placid we stopped in a cool sandwich place, named after all the trails and peaks in the area.

 Huge sandwiches.

 Nom, nom, nom!

 Scenic as hell!

 There was real snow there! We're expecting a big storm tomorrow
but last week it was a novelty!

 At the Olympic Center...the one from the first Olympics in the 1930s.

 On the way home through in the Adirondacks, we pulled over to take our last photos
as the sun set.

We had a wonderful day...and intend to head back in the spring
when the days are longer and warmer.
