Heading Home Through Parishville and Colton

Well, it had been a short visit at the farm but I'd been able to verify that all was well and to spend a night there. Now it was time to drive back home again. I loaded all the dogs into the back of the car and headed south towards Albany. Then, on the spur of the moment, I decided to take a different route home just to see some new scenery. I turned southwest on a county road at Greg and Molly's general store and that took me through the town of Parishville where I passed this old house:

And this remarkable stone house:

I really liked this brick house:
I pass many state forests as I drive most anywhere near the farm. When I drive to Massena, I pass Lost Nation State Forest. Driving south through Parishville and Colton, I passed Whiskey Flats State Forest:

And shortly thereafter, High Flats State Forest:

In the small town of Colton, I saw the Timber Tavern, surely a gathering place and watering hole for the local populace. When I used to live in tiny Berlin, New York, there was a similar place called The Lamp Post - - but that's another story which I won't go into here:

And I thought this was a rather elegant home, especially for such a tiny Adirondack town. I'll post more of the sights I passed on my way south in the next post:
