Weekend Visit to Adirondack State Park

I stopped at Northhampton Community Gardens on my way west in hopes of spotting either a Long-Tailed Skipper or a Checkered White, but I was unlucky on both.  Still, it was a wonderful couple of hours under overcast skies and cool temps.

From there, it was on to my weekend in the Adirondacks with my sister and her husband.  We stayed at Fish Creek Pond and enjoyed this beautiful view.
