Weeping Sacandaga...

Drove up to Lake Luzerne NY in southern Adirondacks this past Monday with American Canoe Association Executive Director Pam Dillon to look at one of the eight potential relocation sites for ACA headquarters.

The Adirondack Region is spectacularly beautiful. The Town of Lake Luzerne is like a fine New England village, surrounded by lakes and the Hudson River and Sacandaga River. This trip was a nice opportunity to chat with Pam and learn a great deal about the inner workings of ACA past and present.

Over the weekend the ACA Board of Direcors met at another possible relocation site -- Fredericksburg VA, along the banks of the Rappahannock River. They treated us like royalty as did the folks in Lake Luzerne.

In a few days I head to Canaan Valley West Virginia for the annual Parsons Family Reunion, one of my favorite beautiful and wild places.

After that it's back to my mundane existence as a vineyard man and rivergeek.
