Reindeer Antlers!

DSC04442Handsome Viima is busy growing his rack (all of this progress has been since mid-April). It will be a beautiful one and will stay “in velvet” until the fall when he will rub off all the velvet to reveal the hard antler beneath! His winter coat is coming off gradually, and soon he will have a shimmering summer coat to proudly display.

Special Family Members!

DSC04438Kiva (Karelian bear dog) and Balto (husky mix rescue pup) have become the best of friends! Balto always wants all the toys (that is a chewy bone between his paws), and Kiva generally waits patiently for Balto to become distracted before stealing them from him. That’s what she is doing in this photo…just biding her time!

Spring in the Adirondacks

If you love to see nature erupt in the spring – from the bushes and wildflowers blooming to the young fauns and cubs emerging from dens – you owe it yourself and your family to make a trip to the Adirondacks in the spring.

Yes, the temperatures can be a bit chilly in late-March through mid-June. And you may see some snow still on the hiking trails (cross-country skiing, anyone?). But the tourists haven’t really arrived yet, so visiting the Adirondacks in the spring can mean just you and the quiet wonder of nature as you hike, canoe, fish, bike – or even ski or snowshoe.

Read below for some great things to do in the spring in the Adirondacks.

  • magnoliaGo for a horseback ride. Several ranches offer riding opportunities for experienced riders and beginners alike. Children love to ride horses and those ranches that offer rides always have gentle and slow smaller horses for your gentle, slower and smaller children.
  • Check out the downtowns of the towns of Lake George and Glens Falls. Both have an eclectic mix of restaurants, galleries, gift shops, boutiques and more that are sure to please everyone in your party.
  • Golf! Several golf courses and resorts are open at this time of year, yet the links are far less crowded.
  • Book a massage, facial, pedicure – or all three – at one of several salons and/or spas located in the Adirondacks. If coming to the Adirondacks for a romantic getaway spas, many offer couples’ massages, facials, etc.
  • Go canoeing, kayaking or even whitewater rafting.
  • Go for a hike! Yes, it probably will be muddy, but just be sure to wear warm layers that you don’t mind getting dirty, bring a walking stick, a good hat, sturdy shoes, plenty of water, sandwiches, and get ready to be amazed at the flora and fauna along the trail! Depending on any lingering snowpack, see how many of the 46 Adirondack mountain peaks you can climb in one day (it is possible to climb two or three in one day – they’re quite close together).
  • Nights can still get chilly, making for the perfect excuse to stay snug and cozy in front of a fireplace drinking hot cocoa or a terrific glass of wine.
  • Go on a getaway. If you love the outdoors, you’ll love the Adirondacks in the spring. The earth is just waking from its winter sleep. Trees and shrubs are starting to bud. Birds are starting to call to each other. Mammals are coming out of their burrows or stretching their legs to welcome the renewal. The quiet is intoxicating, the weather during the day is crisp and the surroundings are breathtaking.

The Sights and Sounds of an Adirondack Cross Country Ski Trail

Cross Country Ski Trails Sound Like ... Silence and WildlifeStrap on some cross country skis and then head out to one of the many cross country ski trails available throughout the Adirondacks for beginners and experienced skiers alike and you’ll soon notice something deafening.

Silence.

Well, actually, you’ll hear a lot. You’ll hear the sound of the wind blowing through trees and plants that are unlike any other wild place in the northeast section of the United States.  You’ll hear the sounds of bird and animal calls.

Although the only man-made sounds and sights you might hear and see are those of your skis on the snow as you glide along, your senses truly will be filled, possibly more than you’ve ever known possible.

The Adirondacks are both temperate and boreal forest, providing a great diversity of plant and animal communities.

You’ll glide through large wetlands, hardwood and conifer forests and rock outcroppings.

You’ll also more than likely spy one or more of the more than 53 mammal species that make their home in the Adirondacks.

Just some of the mammals you may see include:

  • Moose
  • Shrews
  • Moles
  • Hares, rabbits and pikas
  • Bats
  • Foxes and coyotes
  • Bobcats
  • River otters
  • Weasels
  • Minks and martens
  • Raccoons
  • Deer mice
  • Voles
  • White-tailed deer

And more.

Naturally, many of these mammals may be hibernating as you glide by, but if you pay close attention, you may see at least one.

Dozens of bird species make their home in the Adirondacks. From the American Kestrel, the Three-toed Woodpecker, the Bald Eagle, the  Belted Kingfisher, the Baltimore Oriole, the Bobolink, the Broad-winged Hawk, the Canada Goose, the little House Wren, the Northern Hawk Owl, the Peregrine Falcone, the Red-tailed Hawk, you’re bound to see – and hear – at least one.

Don’t let winter keep you from staying in the Adirondacks. There’s plenty to do here in winter. In addition to cross-country skiing, you can strap on some snow shoes and take a hike, hit the slopes, go ice skating, and finish your day by a roaring fireplace as you drink hot cocoa (with marshmallows, of course!)

You needn’t spend an arm and a leg on a hotel, either. Our Lapland Lake warm and cozy cabins are open all year long. All winter cabins are well-insulated for warmth and comfort. Rent one of our winter cabins and you also receive complimentary use of our ski and snowshoe trails, our tubing hills (suitable for children) and an ice skating pond.
