|Signs of fall are all around|
The mountains are especially quiet and beautiful in September which seems to heighten the sense of remoteness that one feels in the less traveled parts of the Adirondack Park. The families that vacation in the mountains in the summer are back to their regular routines and those who like to observe the fall foliage are still planning their travels. My wife and I enjoyed some fantastic weather for hiking and I fished a familiar small stream and did a little prospecting on a new stream.

Even though our visit was brief I was so thankful to have the opportunity to enjoy the mountains at this wonderful time of year. Our final day in the mountains we decided to hike early and enjoy the view below before heading home.
