    My Summer Vacation

    I hope I am not going to bore you with this thread but I thought I would share my summer vacation with you. Day one of my 10 day summer vacation was spent doing a century on the north end of the Adirondack park. I started a thread on that earlier - not much interest. If no one is interested in this one I'll let it die as well.

    Day 2 - today was spent with some family time, no riding. We visited a very secluded spot with extreme beauty called "The Black Hole"



    A swimming hole well known to the locals



    And after much thought - my wife takes the plunge



    And one of the locals from the other bank drops in



    After this adventure the rest of the afternoon was spent on 13th lake in the canoe exploring beaver lodges and more swimming.

    Tomorrow an early morning bike ride to Maxham Mountain & pond. Pics to follow.

    Excellent swimming hole! We go to an abandoned marble quarry in VT that is similar. Deep, cold clear water-very refreshing on a hot day.

    Indeed! No rock quarry here - all natural formations. This is very close to where this creek will dump into the Hudson river.
