Travel Thursday is back!
A month ago I had the pleasure of taking a little weekend trip to upstate New York. One of my roommates ran the marathon held at Lake Placid. I didn’t know what to expect, and all I knew about Lake Placid was that they held the Olympics quite awhile ago. Needless to say, the little mountain town and lake blew me away. It was utterly breathtaking. The mountain air was so refreshing after being stuck in the city for six months. The last time I had left the city was for christmas so I was in much need for a little break. We stayed at the cutest little motel that was a short walking distance from main street and the lake. All the locals were such a delight and unbelievably helpful. I’m not going to lie I forgot about how nice people can be outside of New York.
The marathon took place on Sunday and the weather could not have been more perfect for the runners. Ajax and I saw my roommate start, cheering her on, and then went for a long hike while she ran for four hours. I also had the pleasure of renting a canoe to go canoeing with Ajax on the lake. Unfortunately, I was unable to document our little date excursion due to the fear of tipping us over. It was an adventure, though. Enjoy the pictures I was able to take. Another trip to Lake Placid is definitely in the works.
