The Lake George Wild Forest consists of approximately 71,133 acres of State Forest Preserve lands in the southeastern Adirondacks in the towns of Bolton, Chester, Hague, Horicon, Lake George, Lake Luzerne, Queensbury and Warrensburg in Warren County and the towns of Dresden, Fort Ann, and Putnam in Washington County and is generally bounded on the north by the Warren County line, on the west by the Hudson River, and on the south and east by the Adirondack Park boundary. The Lake George Wild Forest contains miles of marked trails available to explore, allowing the public to easily access a variety of majestic natural attractions such as Black Mountain, Shelving Rock, and Prospect Mountain.

Recreationists also enjoy year-round activities on Lake George, and popular fishing and camping locations at Lily Pond, Jabe Pond, Gay Pond and Palmer Pond. The Lake George Wild Forest is a popular area for motorized recreational uses and ice fishing, and serves as an important link with the adjoining snowmobile trail network.

In addition, the Hudson River Recreation Area of the Lake George Wild Forest enables the public to experience a unique flatwater environment and other recreation opportunities along this historic waterway.

Nice morning for a little walk down along Onondoga Lake. This time i walked down by the Salt Museum from the Yacht Club then also along the long forgotten creek at the border of the park. I was thinking about going back down to Green Lakes, but I didn’t really get an early enough of a start to do that. Still only very occasional color, but then again, this area doesn’t get much color until another 2-3 weeks. It’s not like the higher elevation locations.

A lunch time I have to get out for a nice walk, because rain and clouds are expected for the second half of the week ….

Tonight will have a chance of showers, mainly after 2am. Mostly cloudy, with a low of 56 degrees at 6am. 10 degrees above normal. Maximum dew point of 53 at 8pm. East wind 7 to 9 mph.

Good evening! Mostly clear and 60 degrees in North Syracuse Calm wind. The dew point is 45 degrees. Nice cool autumn evening, but not too cold. Went out for a nice walk along Onondoga Lake this morning, although so far not much color yet. But it will come. I shouldn’t be rushing it as winter is already bleak enough. Then mid-day went for a walk around North Syracuse. A busy at times day but other times, it was fairly quiet.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low of 47 degrees at 6am. One degree above normal. Light southeast wind. The record low of 24 occurred back in 1947.

Good evening! Cloudy and 63 degrees in North Syracuse. There is a south-southwest breeze at 10 mph. The dew point is 55 degrees. The skies will clear tomorrow around 4 am.

Somewhat watching the debate, but not really. Mostly playing on Facebook and Twitter and drinking, thinking I better stop pretty soon if I want to get up and go to work tomorrow. It’s interesting to learn about both candidates, although I’m still not certain who I will vote for come November. I like being an undecided voter — it gives me a chance to listen to the candidates with an open mind.

The sun will rise at 6:57 am with the first light at 6:29 am, which is 1 minutes and 7 seconds later then yesterday.
