"Rain, Rain Go Away..."

"...Please come again another day." A day when we aren't trying to see the gorgeous leaves this fall! We met our friends Heinz and Jacqueline up in Lake Placid for some window shopping and leaf peeping yesterday. Unfortunately it was drizzly and chilly, but despite the weather, we even went up the Whiteface Mountain gondola ride. The colors were definitely at their peak, but I bet they would have been spectacular if there was sun on them.


Signage at the summit:
Near where we got off the gondola at the top, there was a ski patrol and communications building being built. This is how the materials get up the mountain...

Then it really started raining and there was nowhere to hide out of the wetness, so we didn't stay long and headed back down.

It's quite a steep journey!
Back at the base station, Dave and Jacky pose by our gondola.
It may have been a gray day but it certainly didn't dampen our spirits. What a fun time with great friends. Thank you so much Jacqueline and Heinz!
