Adirondack Route 28N, A Road Of Much Beauty

Firs and tamaracks surrounded the meadow and balsams filled the air with their aroma:

Winky gave up his crabby demeanor for a puppy-like romp in the autumn grass:

We were exploring the meadow when I noticed this old abandoned cabin across the road:

And this colorful mountain watched over us:
