Several years ago in a beaver bay on the back side of St. Regis Mt. I was entertained by two otters chasing each other onto a slide, down into the bay, scurrying back up to the slide, down, again and again, chattering away. Continued until both went on point, looking West into the wind. Both hit the bay and disappeared. A few minutes latter, a coyote appeared at the top of the slide. Beautiful looking animal, as were the otters.
Give me the mountains, or give me death.

Seen otters on little remote ponds in the ADKs and I've been surprised by otters on Lake George, in the narrows....a whole family of them chattering woke me up one pre-dawn while camping. ... also at the Village docks in downtown LG, where they'd set up shop one (recent) spring

I think you mean that that Wild Center is in TUPPER Lake,,,, the Adk Museum is in Blue Mountain Lake. Both great places though!

I saw a family of them in Chair Rock Flow this September - one larger one & three smaller ones, wandering around the bay. It was during an evening paddle around the flow. After the trip I saw that a guidebook mentioned they're often seen in those south bays of Cranberry Lake.

How to spot an otter?

Great thread!

I've had quite a few encounters with river otters- over the last several years especially. I've seen them in the Fulton Chain Wild forest, the Jessup arm of Indian Lake, Ha de Ron dah Wilderness, and more locally in the Tug Hill region. Most recently, a family group of four sniffed and snorted about 20' from me on East Pine Pond while I photographed the pond (wide angle lens on- so no otter pics &#128532

I'm sure I've seen them once and nearly certain I've seen them twice. The certain time was from the shore of the Grass Pond portion of Lows Lake as a mama and babies swam by a few years ago. And quite a few years before that I was at Duck Hole in late fall / early winter and a few otter / beaver looking things seemed to be chilling and playing on ice that had formed. I saw that happening after AI woke up from the leanto so I didn't get a close look.
