From Whiteface

The cloud cover at Whiteface Mountain cleared just enough for us today to enjoy some nice views... (please click on the pic!) I could see Lake Champlain from the summit, but not Montreal. This is a partial view of Lake Placid, btw. There'll be days of pics (yawn!) when I've recovered some and slept. There were singing Bicknell's and Swainson's today and a far-off view of a Bald Eagle from the very tip of Whiteface.


Happy to be home.

Wow Laura... looks like something created, not something that actually exists... breathtakingly beautiful.

Heavy cloud has been hanging over Canada for most of June. But today is clear and sunny for a change. The picture is gorgeous.

Wonderful picture. I just love it when the clouds make patterns on the mountains.

BTW: Your NJ dolphins are still in the news.

Lynne said...

Jayne: Yes it was... I was so glad for the stormy weather that morning and the dramatic pictures it made.

Ruth: Yeah... it was rainy for most of the weekend in the Adirondacks, but I was glad for some sun on Monday!

NCMountainWoman: Yes! That was really cool - I saw the same type of thing across the prairie in ND. Really beautiful.

I don't watch TV, but have been following the dolphin story online as much as possible. Driving past the river is such a circus - all the TV news vans and people milling around. The latest, I think, is that they're going to leave them be for a while and see what happens.

Lynne: Thanks. Falling in might be a tad scary though.


Bobbie: Thanks, yeah. I got lucky to be in the right place at a good time.

KGMom: There's plenty of pix - no worries.

Ruthie: Someday probably. Right now I'm looking at an old pic of sandpipers.

Sekhar: Thanks.

Dorothy: It would I guess, yes.
