Paddling in the Adirondacks

Maggie and I are just back from a couple days canoeing in the St. Regis Canoe area in the western Adirondacks. We stayed at N.Y. state run Fish Creek camp ground (about $30/night no hook ups). The canoe area offers some of the best quiet water canoeing in the northeast with numerous undeveloped ponds that are interconnected with shallow waterways or short portages. For about $5 you can get a very detailed map produced by the Adirondack mountain club. This time of year it is common to be alone on the ponds, except for the resident loon and a few ducks. On Horseshoe pond we spotted an eagle, a rare sight in this part of the country. If you like a leisurely paddle, this is a great place. Raz

We go to Fish Creek every year at least once. There is a teardrop gathering called "Tear-up the ADK" [not restricted to teardrops only] in early June. This year was our 5th year to attend. We had been going to Fish Creek before that. We take kayaks. Last year we went from Fish Creek Pond, up past the boat launch, and ended up in Rollins Pond at the boat launch there. By that time it was late afternoon so we portaged twice as a shortcut back. You can see pictures at campadk.com

That looks awful. Just terrible. Tell you what, send me in your place next time, and spare yourselves the misery.

It's liable to get real crowded there if this actually worked
