Crown Point

CROWN POINT, NY - Arrived at Crown Point DEC Campground and set up on a very nice isolated site. This place is only about 1/4 full, so it should be a quiet night. Temps have dropped, as has humidity, and it should be comfortable sleeping. Did walking tour of Crown Point Historic Site across the road, and it was well worth it - pretty spectacular views from the fort, with the lake, the bridge, and the mountains in the background, all under a British flag. Checked in at Visitors Center re: parking. Suzanne not in on weekends, but "if she OKd it, then no problem." I'll leave her a note in the morning anyway, with an explanation and contact info for the week. Dinner at Frenchman's in Crown Point - very good. Meat loaf, fries, corn on the cob, soup, applesauce, and Boston cream pie for dessert. that should get me off to a good start.

There's another group of at least 5 guys, and maybe others, staying here and starting up the west side of the lake tomorrow. They're from the Hartford, CT, area, and are out for 5 days. Their plan is to cross into and stay in Canada the second night, so our schedules and ambitions are similar. We'll probably play leapfrog for the next couple of days.
