Hudson to Lake George in Adirondacks – a day trip

We took a ride today to Lake George in the Adirondacks on October 6, 2009

Our first visit to this part of NY.  We drove Rte 9 north to Rte 4 N in Troy. Then we picked up Rte 4 wtih a stop in Lock Number 2 on the Champlain Canal (aka Hudson River north of Troy, NY). Troy and Glens Falls are definitely worth another real visit. Lake George is just a large a resort town with lots of hotels and amusements.

Lots more to do in the Adirondacks. Karen read that this park is larger than the state of Vermont.

The trip back via Rte 87 was 90 miles and took 1 and 1/2 hours.
