Adirondacks Redux

Sunrise - Little Sand Point Campground

We ended up doing a Chevy Chase-like  (European Vacation - Lambeth Bridge roundabout scene) trip through the Adirondacks but the scenery was just as incredible the second go-round. :D New York has done an excellent job of preserving its majestic wilderness area.

"Wilderness complements and completes civilization. I might say that the existence of wilderness is also a compliment to civilization. Any society that feels itself too poor to afford the preservation of wilderness is not worthy of the name of civilization." - Edward Abby, Down the River

The Fort Stanwix National Monument caught me by surprise as I did not anticipate finding a fort in the midst of city traffic.

According to the National Park website, Fort Stanwix was known as "the fort that never surrendered," for its role in protecting the "Oneida Carrying Place, a six-mile portage connecting the Mohawk River and Wood Creek, (which) served as a vital link for those traveling by water from the ocean to the Great Lakes."
