Old Forge, NY
A visit to the Adirondacks is not complete without stopping in Old Forge. We found a park bench at the edge of the water with a lovely view to accompany our picnic lunch.
Our main agenda was to visit the new arts center in Old Forge, which has been named The View. It has lots of wonderful spaces, including several galleries and an auditorium.
One of the galleries is the Henry M. Kashiwa Eco Gallery with an exhibit of "Nature's Wonder Inspiring the Arts."
This cairn was made of rocks found in the Adirondacks.
This is a fisher, an animal that's been making a come-back. I saw a similar critter on our property a few months ago, and am now wondering if it was a fisher cat.
Another view of the lake. I think this is the tour boat that offers a ride up the Fulton Chain of Lakes.
