Driving down the highway entering Keene, NY. Majestic view.
Looking down Church Street in Burlington, Vt. This street is home to many retail shops and fine restaurants.
Our favorite hangout when we lived in Peru, NY. Rulf's bakes delicious pies and baked goods. We picked many blueberries and apples from their orchards. The evergreen garland they made and sold at Christmastime was beautiful....so big and mixed with many different evergreen and berries. Just lovely. Rulfs Orchard's definitely a gem up in the Adirondack's.
An old map of Rulf's Orchards.
On our way to Vt. via ferry.
View from ferry looking out at Lake Champlain.
Land of Make Believe in Upper Jay, NY (1954-1979)...created by Art Monaco who designed the original Cinderella Castle for Disney. He built this theme park right in his backyard. Everything was made in child size and children were encouraged to play and touch anything in the park. The local children in the hamlet were able to enter the park free of charge when ever they wanted through a special entrance. Uncle Monaco as he was called from the local children never had children of his own. The park closed in 1979 after several bouts of flooding. Art Monaco designed many theme parks during his 90 years. He died in 2003.
Land of Make Believe now.

Scenes from my favorite eatery in Lake Placid called The Cottage. Nice place to go for drinks, appetizers and
meals. I look forward to sitting on the deck every visit up there. The scenery is pretty.
Picture of the toboggan run.
Imagine starting out at the top of this structure and then you slide down it on a toboggan on to the frozen lake. When you hit the lake you glide forever!
Saratogo, NY. If you like horses you will love Saratoga. Home to many of the greatest horse events throughout the years.
