A Heatwave in Athol, NY

This summer saw some really awful temperatures in NYC, so when it looked like we were getting a lot of days in a row of triple digits, I went up to the mountains. Sadly the heat followed me to a place that didn’t have any AC. It did have a fan though and was at least down in the 80s. So that was helpful. As seen in an earlier post we did get some hiking in. I thought I’d also share a few of the images I took while wandering around the parents house and the surrounding area.
