Sunday, July 10 - The Adirondacks

The Adirondack Mountains are a massif in northeastern Upstate New York. They cover about 5,000 square miles. There are more than 200 lakes around the mountains, including Lake George, Lake Placid, and Lake Tear of the Clouds, which is the source of the Hudson River. The Adirondack Region is also home to hundreds of mountain summits, with some reaching heights of 5,000 feet or more.

The word Adirondack is thought to come from the Mohawk word 'ha-de-ron-dah' meaning 'eaters of trees.' Another early use of the name, spelled Rontaks, was in 1729 by the French missionary Joseph-François Lafitau. He explained that the word was used by the Iroquoians as a derogatory term for groups of Algonquians who did not practice agriculture and therefore sometimes had to eat tree bark to survive harsh winters.

This one is for Cubs on floats. We start at Mallets Head, just north of Burlington, Vermont, and finish up at Wally's on Vandenburgh Point at the south end of Great Sacandaga Lake. Drinks are on me!
