Our Journey in Thirty-Two Sleeps: Part II

Sleep 4 and 5:

Today the Saratoga and North Creek Railway provided us with train 821 which took us into the Adirondacks, along the Hudson River to view the beautiful changing

colors of the foliage, as well as being able to see the towns of Hadley, Luzerne, 1000 acres, Thurman, The Glen, Riparius and a stop to eat and visit in North Creek. We spent our day enthralled with the sights on the trip traveling to North Creek as well as the trip back. How was the weather? It rained on and off, and some of the rain pounded, but did it dampen our spirits and the things we saw?  See for yourself some of the treasures of the day.  Love, hugs and thanks to our dear lovely, lifelong friends, generous, caring E & D for a our wonderful sleeps in your company. You showed us a little part of Heaven!

    The colors are sooo beautiful. I remember a visit at “leaf peeping” time and the beauty of nature was incredible. I had no idea that the leaves changed to red!!!

      Leaf peeping huh? I will remember that. Thanks for the comment. All is well so far, and God Willing more to come. We are in Virginia today and it is lovely, but lots of traffic. People live here and commute to govt jobs. Hope you are able to control the pain. Think of you often.
