    ADKs in NY: Bog River/Low's Lake

    My girlfriend and I just spent a wet but very enjoyable five days in the Adirondacks, canoe camping along the Bog River and Low's Lake.

    Ready to take off from upstream of the Bog River Lower Dam:


    View from our first campsite:


    My hammock (ENO Dbl.Nest, OES tarp, KAQ New River UQ)


    Our dining tent, table, chairs, and Amanda's hammock (Grand Trunk UL, Arrowhead Equip. Toxaway tarp, KAQ New River UQ)


    Night-time temps stayed in the high 40's/low 50's, which is quite nice for this time of the year here.

    A rainy hike up Low's Ridge


    Looking west down the lake


    The dining tarp decorated by falling maple leaves


    Narrows on the Bog River


    It was a beautiful place, made more beautiful by the fall colors. We're already planning our next fall trip there!

    Take it easy,

    Wow what great pics. I have yet to make it to the Adirondacks but with that scenery, I'll have to plan a trip in the future. Even though a little wet, it seems like you guys had a great time.

    Thanks!

    I encourage you to explore the Adirondacks. A lot of the prettiest areas are easily accesible by a major road from the south (NY87 - the Adirondack Northway) and then a short drive west from it.

    I live right on the NY/VT border at the southern end of L.Champlain, and the Bog River/Low's Lake area was about a two-hour drive from my house.
