Rain was our most constant companion on this trip. We didn't find the falls in Glens Falls but from what I read online we may not have seen much anyway. Technically we spent the night in Queensbury which surrounds Glens Falls. It rained all night. Morning newscasts were warning of localized flooding. When we checked out I asked the clerk if we needed to be aware of any flooding in the immediate area. She said, "no". After a summer of drought the rains were appreciated. The broadcasters were calling it a 'nor'easter'. I thought 'nor'easters' were stormier but maybe they were expecting them to become wilder with hurricane Joaquin coming up the east coast.
Our days of 'leaf peeping' along the scenic byways of Vermont and New Hampshire were going to be soggy and done from the car with no hikes in wooded parks.
here to understand what this place is all about.
I can remember Mom using King Arthur Flour occasionally. I don't think she bought it often just because she usually bought what was on sale or least expensive. But somewhere in the back of my mind I had retained a positive reaction to the brand. Visiting their Vermont flagship campus only added to the feeling. How I wish my mother could have seen it with me. She would have loved it.
