Weekend in Lake George

Finally got out of town for a weekend up in Lake George. What a waste. The place was totally dead, no business anywhere. It doesn't help that the unemployment rate in the Glens Falls area is the highest in the region.

Then I wanted to get out in the morning and go cross country skiing. For a village/town that spends millions promoting tourism, they had NO ski trails what so ever. I went to Glens Falls, the old mill town, who has a beautiful set of groomed and lit trails, 5 miles of them in Cole Woods aka Crandall Park. Figure that one out! It's right off of US 9 in the north part of the city by the Y, there is even a trail beneathe the Northway. It's between Exits 18 and 19
