When I am near to water, I enjoy photographing the reflections of clouds on the water as well as the shapes of the various lily pad leaves.

Adirondack Park Agency Interpretive Center at Paul Smith’s

When traveling down to hike in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack’s, I often stopped at the Adirondack Park Agency Interpretive Center to stretch my legs with a quick walk around some of the shorter trails. This August day was no exception.

UPDATE: The Adirondack Park Agency Interpretive Center at Paul Smith’s is apparently closing at the end of 2010 due to lack of state funding. Not sure what the status of the trails at that location will be after the Interpretive Center building closes.
