Carpe Adirondack Diem

Grab Today’s Perfect Adirondack Day - Rain is Coming

Mount Marcy from Mountain Pose.

Mount Marcy this morning from Mountain Pose.

The weather forecast tells us today is the last gorgeous Adirondack summer day we’ll see for nearly a week.  As you can see in this morning’s view from the mat, there is not a cloud in the sky here in Lake Placid. You may also notice a faint yellow glow to the hardwood leaves, already less perky and turgid. These are all clues late summer has arrived in the Adirondacks and fall is not far behind.

For these reasons and a few others I’m calling Carpe Adirondack Diem and suggest you do the same. (Regular readers will appreciate just how special today must be since I usually reserve Carpe Adirondack Diem for powder days.)

For me, a bike ride and then a swim is in order. If you need some ideas for other ways to take advantage of this perfect Adirondack day consider hiking, paddling, or strolling or running through the north woods. If this is a work day have a walking-around-town meeting.  Just remember the Adirondack lifestyle motto: it would be a shame to let a day like this go to waste.
