The Adirondacks

Headed north to the Adirondack Park,  a massive 6.1 million acre park
comprised of a mix of public and private land.

 Our main destination was great camp Sagamore, a camp once owned by the Vanderbilt family.
This was the lodge we stayed in.

 The interior is rustic and comfortable.

 Other buildings house the dining room and library.

The wealthy Vanderbilts didn't lack for much at the camp.
They even had a bowling alley!

All situated on lovely Sagamore Lake.

We found plenty to do.
We toured the working section of the camp with a barn, school, blacksmith shed, 
woodshed, gardens and many other buildings vital to the running of the camp.

 We kayaked on the lake.

And hiked the woods.
And we toured two other great camps.
Read about them in another blog post.
