Hiking - Sawyer Mountain, Blue Mountain Lake, NY

(INDIAN LAKE, NY) Sunday looked like it wouldn't be a very good weather day. With wifi in the camp, we were able to check the local radar and make plans according to when it might be dry. My brother Walt arrived around 10:30-11:00, and the rain would be there not long thereafter. Fortunately, it looked like a brief passing shower, so we chatted for a while, had lunch, and then decided to get in a short hike, to nearby Sawyer Mountain.

It was a steamy afternoon, and even worse once the sun appeared. We were all soaking wet by the time we reached the view near the summit.

After returning to camp, we all felt like a paddle and a swim, and the weather still looked OK. So we paddled out to a sandbar in the middle of Adirondack Lake, secured the boats, and enjoyed the shallow warm water until more clouds started to roll in. Watching golf on the wide-screen TV in the camp finished off the afternoon.

For dinner, we ate at the Indian Lake Restaurant, at the junction of NY28 and NY30. There was a bit of a wait, but the menu was varied and the food was pretty good all around. Then it was an early night after a couple of beers and a little reading.
