They are already on a photohosting site, but this site does not recognize the [img] for pics.

My daughter and I went camping in the Western Adirondack Mountains last week. We went to the Otter Creek Horse Trail System. Although it is cold this time of year and hunting season is open, we still went. Had the trailhead camp to ourselves, no one else was there. Rode after setting up camp on Friday, packed lunch and rode all day Saturday, then did another short loop on Sunday morning after packing up. Total of 20 miles. We had a great time. Never knew a 14 year old could kick my butt in Rummy so many times. Here are a lot of pics, but I thought you would all enjoy them.
Packed trailer

Lunch stop at Cats paw Lake


COFFEE!!!!!

Continuing on



Hunters shack in the middle of the woods. Called the Wolves Den

More trails, and these are the trail markers we follow. Different colors for different trails.


Night view

End of the line

This was a fantastic three days with my daughter. We saw no other campers, and no other riders. Coming back to camp one afternoon we saw a two trailers in the lot and the people were loading up to leave. The weather was cold, as a matter of fact, the frost was still on the ground on our way back from our long ride at 4:30 in the afternoon in the shaded areas. The wood stove was a great way to stay warm at night and warm up after our rides. The trails were great and well marked. Only one or two spots was it soupy mud. Two of the creek crossings were backed up by beaver and were up to and part way up the horses bellies. I know it was cold, but we kept moving and really had no choice as to turn back was a LOT longer than going forward, and would have brought us back to camp well after dark.

I would definitely recommend Otter Creek in the Western ADK mountains.

WOW that was painful. Spent the time to get it all set and I was told max of 15 images and I had 25. hilight, cut, post firts 15, go to post next 10...only allowed to post again after 30 seconds. Here I am on dialup worried that it all might get lost and have to do it all over again.

But it's done and up.....Enjoy!!!
