The Adirondack Mountains region is one of the most beautiful parts of our country. From Rochester only a morning’s drive with one stop for bathroom and coffee and yet it had been over a year since our last visit. We stayed with our friends, Pete and Shelley and kept them up til the the wee hours. The stars up here are killer. It was a new moon and a perfectly clear sky on Friday night. Looking straight up at midnight was a trip. The daytime view was equally astounding.
