At the end of August, we had the unhappy event of laying my Step-Father, Fritz, to rest. We also took this opportunity to stay for a while and explore Schroon Lake for a day. My mom was born and raised here and all of us kids summered here and know the area quite well.
There really isn't much to say about this visit. It is the first time in 25 years that I've been able to really visit Schroon Lake and remember my childhood days here. This is where I caught the largest bass in my age group (17 1/2 inch small mouth bass). This is where I helped my Grandfather, Elmer Huntly, make pizza sauce for Grandma's pizzaria. I remember getting up at 4:00 a.m. for a trip to the dump with Grandpa to see the bears. I remember bringing my first girlfriend to Schroon Lake. Fourth of July, the Square Dances, Word of Life Island, Chang (Grandma's siamease cat), catching minnows at the end of the street in the lake, the smell of freshly baked breads and pies... The memories of my youth
I've included photo's I took while strolling down memory lane, along with a variety of family pictures. I've also included a few from our trip to Saratoga Flat Track durring the same vacation. Click on the link below.
These pictures will only be online for two weeks as they take up too much space on my website. I will be removing them on or about September 27th. Have fun!
