Scenes from a Long Weekend-Part III

So, I’ve already told you about the Farm 2 Fork Festival and dinner with the family, but I haven’t yet filled you in on the rest of the weekend.

Ben’s sister and niece were also in the area this weekend. So, on Sunday, after church and a quick lunch, we met them just outside of Lake Placid bearing some of the best local cuisine…Clare and Carl’s Michigans (just google it).

After leaving my car parked on the side of the road, we headed up Whiteface Mountain…although I’ve lived in the North Country for quite some time, I’d never actually made this trip before, so I was pretty excited… unfortunately, I didn’t really think too far ahead and was not wearing the best outfit for being on top of a mountain ( a cotton dress and a pair of slip-ons)…luckily, I had a zip-up in my car.

Anyway, we drove up the mountain slowly, stopping to take a few pictures along the way…

When we reached the top and found a parking spot, we took the elevator to the top of the mountain (!!!!) and looked around…then we walked/hiked down to the castle and enjoyed our Michigans before hitting the road again.

Although it was a quick trip, it was really great to catch up and enjoy the view from the top.

After we got back to the car, Ben and I decided to head into Lake Placid to wander around, with a pit-stop for root beer floats.

Overall, it was a pretty awesome weekend and we are both thankful for the quality time spent with family.

How was your labor day? What’s your favorite local food? Ever taken an elevator to the top of a mountain?
