During my last day up in the Adirondacks, I went out for a drive to various areas to take pictures. A lot of these are alongside the road, so it was easy to get to. It was frigid out, so I didn’t really want to stay outside for long stretches of time. We stopped off at Lake Abanakee, Lake Durant, Blue Mountain Lake, Buttermilk Falls (which took a little back and forth looking for before we found the path), and Shaw Pond.
For most of these we stopped either on the side of the road or a rest stop except at Buttermilk Falls. We found the small lot for it, then had a short hike through rocks and ice before reaching the falls. It’s not a hard hike, unless there is a lot of ice, then you just have to watch your step, but you can get there and back easily enough.

Next week: Some more black and white studies as I have been busy and not traveling around the tundra of NYC.
