We are total leaf peepers. We were told that it was prime season for leaf peeping up in the "High Peaks" of New York. So, last week we took a little trip up to Lake Placid to enjoy the fall colors. It did not disappoint.
We drove to the Olympic Sports Complex. You can ride the bobsled course from the 1932 and 1980 games. I thought it sounded great but it cost mega money, so we decided against it.
Next, we went and hike High Gorge Falls
On the way home we stopped at The Wild Center just to see what it was all about. The guy at the desk let us in for free. The place is awesome. We really liked watching the otters swim and play. There was lots of hands on stuff for the girls (and adults). Next time we're up that way I think we'd pay and go again.
Plus, they had some really cute moose!
