After work tonight Chelsea and I are heading up to Lake Placid for a short getaway vacation. We are both really excited to visit the area and have a nice weekend away. My parents went to school not too far from there (Plattsburgh) and they happened to volunteer at the winter olympics in 1980. We will also visit Keesville NY and Burlington VT which are separated by a ~1 hour ferry across lake Champlain and happen to be where my Mom and her Mom grew up (small world huh). I really want to visit the old olympic city, and check out the ski jumps and bobsled runs along with a special surprise that may have to do with Herb Brooks. I’m also looking forward to ascending Whiteface mountain and admiring the rest of the Adirondacks we can see. We’ll be sure to take plenty of pictures.
