While paddling our canoes on Stillwater Lake in the Western Adirondacks in our Chapter One group of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association, I saw this canoeist near the shore.  It was cold and rainy out so this was taken with my phone camera as there were also white caps on the open part of the lake. The Fall color is just starting to show up on the trees lining the shore.

We were at Stillwater Reservoir, a man made lake, in the Western Adirondacks at a Wooden Canoe Heritage Association gathering to go out canoeing.  Here we are gathering canoes at the shore of Stillwater getting ready to head out this chilly morning at 45-50 degrees in the rain to explore the lake. There is a kevlar canoe in the foreground and a real wood and canvas canoe in the background. In all we had about 20 people go out onto the lake for some Fall paddling.  Continue reading

While driving back to Eagle Bay from Twitchel Lake in the Adirondacks, we passed many beautiful marshes and creeks and streams.  This creek was really flowing fast in the Fall with a large Eastern Cedar tree on the right.  There is some Fall color in the foliage is beginning to show.

Near our base camp of Kenmore Cottages on Fourth Lake in the Adirondacks there is a lovely low area with wet ground and marsh.  Here a tree had been cut out long ago and the green moss has grown up and completely covered it. The ground is covered in ferns in this very low and wet area. This is early in the morning on a chilly Fall day.

While driving around the Adirondacks looking at all the color change in the foliage, we passed this nice stream near Eagle Bay.  The water was moving fast over the many rocks.  The air was chilly with the Fall beginning to start.

Getting ready to launch our canoes at Stillwater Reservoir in the Adirondacks, we survey the area.  It is calm and quiet water here in this bay in the Western part of the Adirondacks.  The shoreline is sandy and clear of most rocks and the fall color is starting to show. The air and water temperatures are in the 40-50’s and it has been raining but we go out and really enjoy it anyway.  Our group of paddlers is the Chapter One segment of the WCHA (Wooden Canoe Heritage Association).  There are about 20 of us out paddling canoes, kayaks and two Adirondack Guideboats.

We are at Stillwater Reservoir in the Western part of the Adirondacks.  There is some color starting to show on the tops of the trees and occasionally on the small maples on the shoreline:

I liked it when individual little trees appeared near the shoreline filled with bright colors that reflected in the water.

There seem to be thousands of lakes in the Adirondacks.  Here to the West of Fourth Lake and Old Forge, New York there is a large man made lake called Stillwater Reservoir.  This is a huge lake with a long shoreline.  We stopped here to canoe and this outcrop lake shows some of the Fall color starting to show.  The panoramic view was stitched together from 9 large images in Lightroom.  It was a cloudy and rainy day but we went canoeing anyway in the chilly 45-50 degrees and I am glad we did.

After walking out on the dock in the pre-sunrise hours on Fourth Lake in the Adirondacks, we look back at the shoreline at Kenmore Cottages itself.  You can barely see the outlines of the cottages with the mist and low light.  It is chilly on this Fall day North of Old Forge, New York. The air is still a chilly 45 degrees out.

If you get up very early in the morning here at Kenmore Cottages on Fourth Lake in the the Adirondacks, you can usually see lots of fog or mist on the water. Here it is about 5:45 am and the sun is not up yet on this Fall day and its about 36-40 degrees out. The fog is covering everything and then as the sun comes up behind it all over the mountains, there is a glowing light on the horizon.
