We’re back from our trip to the Adirondacks. We went up to Heart Lake again and stayed in a lean-to at the Adirondak Loj. Yes that is spelled correctly. The people who started the lodge were very into the “simplified spelling” movement.
Our shared vacation was very short, but fabulous. The only bad part was that the weather was about 20 degrees colder than usual. It was fine during the day, but dropped into the 30s at night. It was really freaking cold! We did some hiking. We hit Cascade Mountain and hiked to Marcy Dam together, and Art took a solo hike so I could rest.
Of course, we also found a artisan cheesemaker to visit. We visited Nettle Meadow Goat Farm, where they tell you that “happy goats make good cheese.” I have to admit, those were some darn happy looking goats and some pretty tasty cheese. The people were very nice to us, and we even got a great tour of the farm, and met the goats up close and personal!
Here are a few pictures, you can see the rest at Flickr (Vacation 2006 Slide Show).
