Easter is family time. That juicy ham, Easter pie and other traditional goodies bring everyone to the table. Great home made food, drink and conversation always tie the family together. But this Easter why don’t you add some real fun to the festivities after all the libations and fabulous fare are gone?
How about white water rafting, some hiking, mountain biking, fishing or horseback riding? Forget about those video games- put away the Xbox, the Wee and get out into nature, real adventure, the ultimate reality. And the Adirondack State Park in NY is the ultimate venue to create memories that could make this Easter unforgettable. 6 million acres makes the Adirondacks one of the largest parks in the nation. Picture perfect mountains and lakes, a “forever wild” landscape is THE back drop to your outdoor adventure. Who knows may be you’ll see a moose, black bear, loon, osprey, white tail deer or dozens of other wildlife while you are out there. A theater in the wild, what a view!
Blue Mt Lake in the central Adirondacks, is smack dab in the middle of the park. Lakes are everywhere, just to name a few: Blue, Eagle, Raquette, Long, the Fulton Chain of lakes 1st thru 8th, Durant, Indian, Adirondack, Lewy, Abanakee, and Tupper Lakes are where you can get out on the water, for some fishing or even early canoeing or kayaking. And some of the highest peaks: Snowy mt, Blue mt, Oak mt are between 3,200 and 3,900 ft vertical make horseback riding, hiking and mt biking scenically ideal. And if you want a little more speed and excitement there is white water rafting in Indian Lake. Huge snow this winter means huge melt off and even bigger rapids this spring.
Eat, enjoy each others company and have FUN in the Adirondacks this Easter in Blue Mt Lake.
