St. Regis River,...

Sunday I attended a family birthday party for my friend's uncle who had turned 80. We drove west through Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Paul Smiths to route 458 and then the last few miles on that road that runs near the St.Regis River. It was a dreary day, either raining or overcast all day long, the misty weather adding mood to the views of the river.


The party was held at a campground in the village of St.Regis Falls. A new footbridge has been built across the river, affording a wonderful "Adirondack View" of down the river...and back upriver toward the falls for which the village is named.
The balancing rock in the middle of the river is another example of large boulders left behind by glacial melting.

That's really nice country and the river is beautiful! The rain looks so good right now too! We also have a St Regis River near here and a small town of that name also.
