New York

Lake Placid at sunset

So on our second day of hiking in Lake Placid we went to Cascade mountain. We summited! We were rewarded with an amazing 360 view of the whole area. There were others at the top who were bundled and ready to climb Everest complete with puffy, down parkas, hats, gloves, and gaiters. They whispered, "Do you see that girl there, she only has a sweatshirt on?" That's when Elizabeth turned, and we looked at each other and smiled, "It's alright, we're from the midwest."
I found this little store that I just knew Sam would love. It smelled so great in there, of course I picked up a few things for him!

And Lake Placid is home to the 1980 Olympics, where "Miracle" occurred and we won the gold! We even got to peek into the Herb Brooks arena!
