Memorial Day Weekend in Lake Placid

Swimming in the Adirondacks May 2012

Swimming in the Adirondacks in May is an unusual treat.

It has been a lovely weekend so far in the Adirondacks. Outdoor recreation enthusiasts are happy to find dry trails, great cycling conditions, and plenty of water for paddling or swimming. Ironman training camp participants are around every corner cycling, running, and swimming their way through the Adirondacks.  Mirror Lake is warm enough for young children and persons in wetsuits to enjoy a swim, although a quick dip after a bike ride sufficed for me recently.

Speaking of bike riding, road cycling everywhere in the Adirondacks has been wonderful so far this season. As you can see in the video, road biking through the Jay Mountain Range in the Adirondacks recently was a memorable experience.

Recent sunny warm weather has compelled me to heed my own Adirondack Lifestyle Wellness Theory advice - get outside and play - and so I did. A lot, but not nearly enough: it is a good thing the long weekend includes two more days!

If you haven’t been outside yet, there is still time to make this a memorable Adirondack weekend.
