Boating on Lake Placid(High Peaks)
Went to Lake Placid to celebrate my lifelong best friend Mark's bachelor party this weekend with the guys. We rented a pontoon boat on Saturday afternoon and enjoyed a perfect autumn afternoon on Lake Placid's gorgeous waters.
There are many beautiful homes and boat houses along these shores, many with a worth of well over a million dollars.
Blue waters, blue skies and fall foliage.
The hillsides were ablaze in peak color.
We simply couldn't have asked for better weather.
The foliage was literally eye popping.
We were all very relaxed as we soaked in our surroundings.
