The Adirondack Carousel

As you read in yesterday's post, I'd parked behind the Adirondack Rail Station in Saranac Lake in order to find a shaded, secluded place where I could leave the dogs in the car. Then I walked a short distance to the newly opened Adirondack Carousel, anxious to see its hand carved animals:

The children (or adults) ride Adirondack animals and there are local wildflowers and Adirondack scenes painted overhead. The animals include Blue Heron, Large Mouthed Bass, Brook Trout, Beaver, White-Tailed Deer, Black Bear, Bobcat, Bald Eagle, Red Fox, Snowshoe Hare, Hermit Thrush, Draft Horse, Loon, Moose, Otter, Porcupine, Red Squirrel, Raccoon, Salamander, Skunk, Turtle, Toad - and my very favorite, the Black Fly:

You can read all about it at their website:

All the riders were clustered in one section of the carousel and they sure were having a good time:

Ah, there's a brave little girl riding the infamous Black Fly:

The Bass and the Loon also had riders:

But the carousel's speed kept increasing and I could tell that my photos would be blurry:

So I set my camera to video:
