After I left Exeter, NH and Eric’s family, I rode east toward the Catskill Mountains. Traffic was slow and I got caught behind several long lines of cars so I cut my way to “Superslab” (Interstate) to make it to the Catskills.
The ranger and his assistant were really, REALLY eerie too. The ranger looked like Christoper Walkin and his assistant behaved like someone out of the movie “Deliverance”.
The camp was beautiful though and I survived the night.
There, I got to see potential Olympic downhill skiers practice their routines. They were not practicing in the snow obviously but in a pool. I able to get quite close to the athletes to get pictures.
After I watch the skiers perform their routines, I rode to a different part of Lake Placid where I got to ride to the top ski lift where the skiers performed their long jumps during the 1980 Olympic games.
I wandered through the town of Lake Placid and stopped by The Olympic Center but nothing much was going on so I moved on to Watertown, NY where I overnighted.
