Visiting Lake Placid, NY

For the past 15 years it's been our annual tradition to visit Lake Placid, NY, usually around the 4th of July. This year we went for a quick weekend visit, but we squeezed in lots of fun stuff!

First we checked out the John Brown farm. Brown was an abolitionist and the farm is now a historic site with hiking trails.

From there we walked over to the Olympic ski jumps and checked out some summer skiing.

The next day we headed over to Tupper Lake and the Wild Center. They recently opened the Wild Walk, which is a very cool structure that reaches about 40 feet above the ground.

Later that afternoon we drove back to Lake Placid to check out the grand prix competition at the horse show.

We wrapped up our day with a paddle boat ride around Paradox Bay in Lake Placid.

Before heading home the next morning we walked the 2.7 mile loop around Mirror Lake.

Can't wait to go back next year!
