We usually take the Thruway to Lake Placid, whether from the North or South. Driving South from Plattsburgh, we take exit 34 towards our beloved Olympic village. This morning was no different. Except for the weather, cloudless blue sky and beautiful morning sun.
While driving on Route 86, there is this large curve just before Ausable Forks, with an incredible view of the Ausable River and Whiteface Mountain. Every time we reach this place, we anticipate the view. Unfortunately, more often than not, the sky is too cloudy, the sun is in front of us, totally blinding us from the mountain. Lots, and lots of disappointments! Today was the exception. The perfect spot, and everything else in place: morning sun, blue sky, a deep blue and icy river and a big snowy mountain in the background. Enjoy.
