Headed Southeast From Long Lake

Still heading from the farm toward Albany, the dogs and I were traveling south on Route 30. That's a different route than normal, but I felt I needed a change of scenery. The photo below is the bridge over which Route 30 crosses Long Lake into the town of Long Lake (Long Lake, Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake - the Adirondacks are full of lakes and towns with the same or similar names). I pulled off the road to take this shot:

Wetlands and mountains are clothing themselves with autumn:

And the trees, of course, were spectacular:

This small bridge and waterfall were right alongside Route 28N:

This is called "Fishing Brook." I guess that's descriptive:

I pull off the road often and get out to take photographs. In this case I noticed Seamus the Gigantic in my car looking out the window imploring me to let him come along:

Route 28N heads southeast from Long Lake towards the main highway into Albany:

Reflections:

I stopped to give the dogs (and myself) a rest stop. This little meadow surrounded by firs was already turning dry and crispy. The last time I stopped here it was filled with wildflowers:
