7 Things This Week, 2021-10-03

A weekly list of things I found interesting, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.


This past week I celebrated three years(!) of marriage to my wife and best friend in the world. We spent a few days in the Adirondacks hiking and exploring the gorgeous landscape in the midst of stunning fall foliage. Here are 7 of my favorite shots from the week. (Shot on iPhone 13 mini)

1️⃣
Dog with a stream in the background.
We took our Golden Retriever, Phin, with us and he was a champ throughout the entire 13-mile hiking day up a mountain. ⌘
2️⃣
View of mountains from a valley.
The view of Mt. Colden from Marcy Dam. ⌘
3️⃣
Panoramic view on Mt. Colden.
Reaching the false summit of Mt. Colden. The Adirondack Mountains are pointier than I expected! ⌘
4️⃣
A mountain stream.
I love me a happy little stream tucked away in the mountains. ⌘
5️⃣
Man overlooking Lake Placid from atop a mountain.
Yours truly overlooking Lake Placid from atop Whiteface Mountain. We took an awe-inspiring gondola ride to the top. ⌘
6️⃣
Fried pickles and drinks in front of Mirror Lake.
The food and drinks in Lake Placid were on point! Here, after a long day, we enjoyed fried pickles, a whiskey and beer flight, and a margarita. I can highly recommend both Top of the Park and Smoke Signals. ⌘
7️⃣
Sunset over mountains and lake.
Does it get any better than good food, drink, company, and a sunset over a mountain lake? No, it does not get better than that. 🧡 ⌘

The fall colors were out in full force on this trip; they make the fall one of our favorite times of the year. It’s special to me that my wife and I always get to enjoy the colors together on our anniversary adventures.
