"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place for the first time. " ~ T.S. Eliot

We have just returned from a long weekend in the Adirondacks with two grandchildren. Our first stop, in Tupper Lake, was to The Wild Center

"The Wild Center, and its new Wild Walk—an elevated trail across the treetops—is an all-day attraction, including 81-acres of outdoors, a 54,000-square-foot museum with movies and live animals, guided canoe paddles, and hands-on everything."



"Wander up a trail of bridges to the treetops of the Adirondack forest. Explore a four-story twig tree house filled with animal tales, hang out high above the ground on a giant spider’s web or perch in a full-sized bald eagle’s nest high over the forest. Wild Walk gives you new and lasting perspective on the wild world."





















"In the Hall of the Adirondacks, you can spend time with a myriad fish, turtles, and other animal and plant species, and get a deeper understanding and appreciation of the inner workings of nature in this unique region."







This was a great start to our very busy weekend. Next week I will bring you some shots of our visit to the Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex, and of our climb up White Face Mountain (oh, my aching thighs!).
