Exploring On Two Wheels

When the wind blows too much to be on the lakes, it's time to explore with the Aprilia. During out latest outing, we took some back mountain roads and ended up in Whitehall. One of our favorite stops is Skene Manor, which overlooks the village and the last of the Champlain Canal's locks (or first if you are heading south from the lake).

 We never seem to be there when they are open, but the view is spectacular. 

Skene Manor was built by NYS Supreme Court Judge Joseph H. Potter and it has been sold many times during its history. I even remember when it was a restaurant when Dave and I first started going up north through Whitehall to his parents' camp on Lake George. To read all about the manor, click HERE.
