Rich Lake Paddle
21 August 2006
Adirondack Vacation
Day 3 of our vacation and the first decent weather report.  At least no thunderstorms called for.

Went to nearby Rich Lake that is just outside Newcomb, NY.  Rich Lake is used for studies, allows no motor boats and the access road sign says 'Private Road' on it.  The woman at the Adirondack Visitor Center, just down the road, said we are allowed to use it and gave us a map of the lake and area.

A very pretty natural lake.  A quiet and pleasant day on the water.
Rest cursor on an image to get a description of the picture.
