Chapel Pond, Keene, NY

I took these pictures on the way home from Lake Placid.  I hope the pictures convey the complete peace I felt while taking in this scene.  I wish you could smell it too.  Please click to enlarge the photos.  They are much more impressive that way.  :)
I realized during this trip, that I had forgotten how beautiful The Adirondacks are.  We used to camp all over The Adirondacks in the summers when I was a kid....and I used to tool around during my college years in Plattsburgh, but going back as an adult, with a fresh perspective, is really something else.

Ya know Sharona...Its not JUst the adirondacks that are beautiful...but ALL of upstate NY. I always thought of it as such a secret gem. Few know how truly gorgeous and diverse the state is. But boy does it especially shine in the fall. Your pics show that!

Thanks for the beauty!

What great pictures. I think we must have met sometime when you have been here visiting but I am sorry I don't remember.

I am the husband of your sister's across the street neighbor. How is that for a description.

Best regards,

What a gorgeous area you are blessed to live in, Sharon! I love the colors and the tranquil reflection on the water. And that tree shot with all the roots is stunning! You need to do something with that photo...frame it!

I don't think anything is more beautiful than fall in New England and your photos show that well. Just fantastic!

Ommmmmmm ... makes me want to sit and make time stand still while I drink in all the beauty. And you say there's smell, too? Must be intoxicating, all the beauty for all the senses. Thanks for the tip to click to enlarge. I'm just amazed at all the colors, and that it's not just your expected fall colors, but purples and greens with the oranges. Unbelievable. Thank you thank you for sharing these, Sharon.
