Fall Tour 2014 – a good time had by all!


Fall Tour 2014 – “Car with a view”

The Fall tour was a great success. approximately 30 intrepid CNY members met at Wegmans in Dewitt at 8am on Friday and made their way up thought the Adirondacks to Saranac Lake for a nice lunch at Nona Finas. David and Barbra Tagg selected the lunch stop, they have a summer place just north of Saranac Lake. We had a great Italian buffet with our own dinning area. After a great lunch we all got back underway. The drive through the Adirondacks was very smooth – surprisingly little traffic for peak leaf peeping season!

We made our way to Jay Peak via some very scenic roads and arrived late afternoon. That gave us all little break before meeting at “HQ Condo” for the welcoming happy hour. Brian and Missy arrived just in time with the libations. Cathie White and Barb Conley bought a great selection of appetizers and snacks….way more than we all could consume! Some folks went over to the main lodge to find a nice place for dinner and some of us just hung out at HQ Condo.


Saturday morning we gathered outside HQ condo for the drivers meeting. there was a little nip in the air but we were all ready to go to Mt Washington.

The drive to Mt Washington was the direct route so we could get there quickly and enjoy the drive

up, the view at the top and back down for lunch. The 8 mile drive up the mountain was really nice – amazing views. We all got an early sample of winter walking around the top of Mt Washington, it was about 26 degrees with a little breeze. Frost was everywhere and made for a nice photographic background.

Lunch was at the Glen View café at the base of the mountain. the next part of the journey was a pleasant surprise for most of the travelers. The access roads to Jay peak were pretty rough – lots of frost heaves and a lot of the rest of the Vermont roads were not super smooth. I had scoped out a very nice smooth twisty road north of Mt Washington. I believe we all enjoyed a rather spirited half hour dash though the fall foliage. I know there were a lot of smiles at our group dinner that evening!

Dinner was nice, the location in the massive ski lodge was nice and the company was great.

On Sunday Morning we all road up the tram to the top of jay peak. At the top we were up in the clouds with an occasional break to see an amazing view. Back down to the base lodge and we were ready for the trip home. Some folks opted for the quick direct route but a small group of us headed back through the north part of the Adirondacks. Dave Tagg treated us to another great lunch stop that we all enjoyed and the rest of the trip back was all done in clear skies with beautiful foliage.

I know I enjoyed the weekend a great deal – the driving was fun, the location was great….but the people were even better!


See you next year!
