It’s road-tripping time again! This week I and the fam are exploring the gorgeous Adirondack Mountains (ADK). Our plans to go west having been thwarted (once again) by fires and smoke, we turned our sights eastward in search of a destination that none of us have been to.
We settled on Adirondack Park, a large forest preserve in upstate New York. Even though it has a park designation, it is neither a national park nor a state park; hence there are dozens of small towns, hamlets, farms, and tourist destinations scattered throughout. The most famous of these is Lake Placid, the site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics.
We are spending the week exploring this gorgeous area. Here are a few photos from our first few days:

As you can see in one of the photos, we managed to find a Pakistani restaurant in Lake George (Tandoori Grill. The food was fabulous, and we had fun chatting with the owners, who were amazed that we had lived in Pakistan.
More adventures await!
