We finally got in a camping trip to the Adirondacks Labor Day weekend. We stayed at Lake Harris in the town of Newcomb, NY at camp site 89, which was located right off of the trail to the Santanoni Preserve. It rained off and on the first day up there and we got caught in a few downpours while out on short hikes to Ferd's Bog and a stop at Grassy Pond
|Our first stop once inside the park was at Ferd's Bog to try and pick up some boreal bird species|
|Was lucky enough to see some Pitcher Plant with blooms at the bog|
After our escape from a downpour at the bog and a fresh shirt, we made a stop at Grassy Pond, where we got caught in an even worse downpour. It was very humid and not the weather I am accustomed to when camping in Adirondack's in September. Being pregnant doesn't help either...either way, it was still beautiful.

On the last day we took a short hike along the Northville-Placid Trail south from Route 28N in Long Lake
