Our views of Long Lake


We had another pretty drive today thru Vermont, across Lake Champlain (it's huge!) & into New York & the Adirondack Mountains. The roads we traveled varied from barely 2 lanes to freeways. We drove 164 miles & it took us about 5 hours - you don't drive fast on 2-lane, curvy mountain roads.

We're spending tonite in Long Lake, NY, at Hoss's Country Corner & Campground. It's a small campground but it offers full hookups & is right on Long Lake. We were lucky enough to get a site that is on the lake so we're backed up to the lake with gorgeous views thru our big back window.

We were able to stay hooked up - the site & our trailer are very level - so not much to do to set up. We had a late lunch/early dinner & then took Callie for a walk & checked out the area around the campground. After Callie's dinner we put her in her crate for a snooze & we went over to Hoss's Country Corner store to check out all the stuff they have for sale. David has been looking for a rain jacket to replace his old worn-out one & he found one at a reasonable price here. After cruising around the store for awhile (it's huge!) we walked across the street to Hoss's Ice Cream & had maple creamees for dessert. Good thing we're not going to be in maple country much longer!

So far all we've seen on the lake are geese but we're hoping to hear loons tonight. Tomorrow we have another short drive to Clay, NY, where we'll be visiting friends.

More later...
