Map: Round Lake

Map: Round Lake

The Round Lake Wilderness Area, an Adirondack Park unit of New York's Forest Preserve, is located in the town of Long Lake in Hamilton County. The area is approximately 11,000 acres (45 km2); it was created in 2005 by the Adirondack Park Agency by classifying Round Lake as wilderness, and reclassifying of portions of the Horseshoe Lake Wild Forest and the Hitchens Pond Primitive Area to wilderness status.

There are eleven designated campsites on Round Lake, created in 2007.

In addition to Round Lake, the area includes a stretch of the Bog River Flow, Hitchens Pond, Trout Pond and several smaller ponds.

Off to New York City for work the next few days. Then over to Central New York. At least I’ll get to see a lot of country over the next few days. Going to be an adventure. I’ll take pictures of the places I see and post them to here over the next few weeks. I’m pretty close to being done getting packed. 

Looking ahead, Corn Moon is in 1 weeks, Veterans Day is in 9 weeks and Buy Nothing Day / Black Friday is in 11 weeks.

At sunset, look for mostly clear conditions and 79 degrees. Still pretty warm and muggy. The dew point will be 66 degrees. There will be a west-northwest breeze at 7 mph.

Delmar is a hamlet in the Town of Bethlehem, in Albany County, New York, United States. It is a suburb of the neighboring city of Albany. The community is bisected by NY Route 443 (Delaware Avenue), a major thoroughfare, main street, and route to Albany.

A census-designated place (CDP) has been established since 1980 by the U.S. Census Bureau for tabulating the population of what the census has defined as the boundaries of the urbanized area in and around Delmar. The population was 8,292 at the 2000 census, but it was not included as a CDP in the 2010 census.

In 2005, CNN/Money Magazine named the Delmar ZIP Code (an area larger than the Delmar hamlet or CDP) as one of the "Best Places to Live" in America, rating it the 22nd best place to live among what it called "Great American Towns.

I am having problems with the cigarette lighter extension pulling out and my phone and dash cam not always charging or operating. Right now, I used some electrical tape to hold it together. Long-term I’ll probably have to hardwire the extension and add a switch. I’ll see how things play out.
