Today (Friday) was another beautiful day in the Adirondacks ... since I hiked yesterday I decided to do some paddling today. I went back towards the Osgood Pond area, putting in my canoe onto Jones Brook where it goes under the White Pines Road ... it was a short paddle from there to Osgood Pond. I crossed Osgood Pond, passing the White Pines Camp (Coolidge's summer White House) and into the Osgood River. Not much in the way of autumn color since most of the trees were spruce and white pine.
Photos were taken with my cell phone so the "zoom" isn't that great for some of the wildlife shots ...

Crossing Osgood Pond ... that's St. Regis Mtn off in the distance ... it has a restored fire tower on its summit. Students at nearby Paul Smiths College climb it at every full moon.

On the river ... much of the pickerel weed has turned brown because of the recent frost (it was in the mid-20s here Wed and Thurs mornings)

The river split in two so I took the right fork and paddled until I ran into this beaver dam. Turned around and headed back ...
