This unique retreat sits in the heart of upstate New York's "North Country", at the northern edge of the Adirondacks. It is a short trip to the water sports of Lake Champlain and Vermont on the other side of the lake. Great ski resorts can be had in an hour and a half's travel. Plenty of nearby streams and rivers for convenient kayaking, canoe tripping and fishing. It is also an hour hour away from Montreal with its amazing nightlife and entertainment and it takes less than 5 minutes to drive to the Canadian border.
On 38 extremely private, heavily wooded acres.

Those of you with a passion for native medicinal plants or wild plants in general, take a stroll with me now. I doubt I ever ranged far enough to discover even half of the wild plants on this acreage.
Trillium plants of all colors!
The tall milkweed of my childhood memories!
The vetch delicately weaving through the wild grape vines
Young Equis (Horsetail)
A feathery grove of mature Equis

As I walked past a kitchen window this morning, my peripheral sense caught a color change. A straight on focused gaze determined that a delinquent minion of nature had given us a genuine lawn job but it was hard to imagine a skunk or raccoon digging up a large mossy rock and walking away.
It initially looked like a spent meteorite at the end of its bite-the-dust furrow or a sketch by a UFO crash observer but it turned out to be alive and well.
