News about the Adirondacks


A tarn known as Giant Wash Basin, on the way up Giant. The cliffs were closed to rock climbers when we were here, to protect the nesting peregrine falcons. Photo by Dolores, 5/25/2006

"William James's Adirondacks: The Geography of Religious Experience," New York Times travel section, 9/9/2007

(Thanks to Sacha for alerting us to the article! And thanks to a New York Times reader who wrote a letter to the editor in response, turning us on to this William James quote about the Adirondacks:

"I shall stay here doing hardly any work till late in September. I need to lead a purely animal life for at least two months to carry me through the teaching year...."

(Or, to paraphrase for all us non-teachers, "to carry me through the working year."))
