Trip to Hinckley Lake

Hinckley Lake is a lake at the southwestern border of the Adirondack Park. It supplies the drinking water for the Mohawk Valley. It also supplies water for the New York State Canal system. (By the way, today is opening day for the Canal). There’s been an ongoing battle between numerous groups which all want a piece of the Hinckley pie. I won’t get into such droll politics right now). The kids and I took a little car trip to the area and I snapped a few photos of the lake. I was astonished to see the difference in the water line.

Here’s a photo I took earlier this week:


Here’s the photo I took last year about this time:

Four Pillars of Hinckley Lake1

Noticeable difference!

I’ll be posting about our trip to the area, and of a cute video we took while “getting lost” in the area. I’m still compiling everything, and I am up to my eyeballs in various other projects. I hope to have our post up by Friday.
