Well Hidden

You haven't seen any outdoor "adventures" posted here since January--the end of my 25 months run of at least one monthly night spent out in the woods.  I haven't been holding out on you; I just haven't been out.  I've been dealing with some pain in my right hip since mid-December (the cause is still unexplained, but an appointment with a specialist in a couple weeks should help get to the bottom of it), so I've been hesitant to try anything too adventurous.  But the weather has been great, and the woods were calling, so I took my chances Wednesday/Thursday and went camping.

I stayed in the lean to at Hidden Cove on the eastern shore of Long Lake.  The place is aptly named: I'd walked right by there on the Northville-Lake Placid Trail in 2013, and paddled by there during the Adirondack Canoe Classic in 2014 and 2015...but not found it before this past week.

It's only 1.8 miles from the trailhead, so I figured that was a safe distance in my "condition."  I did pay for it a bit...but a peaceful night in the woods was well worth the price.
