Wormtown 2010

wormtown bonfire

The worms really know how to throw a party, and this years Wormtown Festival was a major rager. We were invited to share a booth with one of the top vendors on the circuit, Rachel and Sage of Fringe Jewelry. They specialize in a variety of different jewelry styles from sterling silver and body jewelry, to earthy tribal designs. Rachel has a wonderful setup and she vend's at virtually every major music festival out east. Of course we accept the invite and set up our stuff. We had a wonderful weekend, Sage's mom Karen from Arkansas was there and she was such a refreshing spirit. She is a hippie from back in the day and her spiritual outlook was light and refreshing. She owns a place in Arkansas which is located in the heart of quartz crystal country.

Saranac River Fall Colors 2009

Blog Update: It's the last day of September and the 2009 fall colors along the Saranac River in New York's Adirondack mountains are getting really getting good now. If I had to guess, I think it'll be about a week before they peak. Hope you enjoy the pictures of New York's scenic Saranac River.

Adirondack Park Fall Foliage 2009

Trip log 22,785mi. - Today we went in search of fall foliage to photograph in the Stillwater Reservoir area of The Adirondack Park, located in Upstate New York. After having the van serviced in Watertown we headed up into the State Forest Preserve for a look at the colorful leaves. It rained most of the day, but that didn't deter us. This year autumn in Upstate New York appears to be a wet one, as unsettled weather is expected for the next several days, so if you want to catch the fall colors you may have to get out despite the rainy weather this fall.

Outside Watertown at the lower elevations the leaves were just starting to change colors.

Once we took the scenic drive up to higher elevations where it's cooler in Adirondack Park the fall foliage was much farther along.

Some spots like around Stillwater Reservoir at 1700' above sea level, were very close to their peak of fall colors only a week or so out.

Harvest Celebration at Cedar Pine Campground

We are at the Harvest Celebration at Cedar Pine not far from Redfield, NY. We came in the back way on a skinny little one lane gravel road that was a very pretty drive. Very friendly atmosphere here, having a great time. Keller Williams, David Grisman and Rusted Root are on the playbill for the weekend.

We came in on Corridor 4A. It was like a tunnel through the trees.

Looking at stage #2 before the music even started on Friday. The weather is excellent and we are all setup.
