Video of the week

I loved the photo of the week idea so much that I thought it'd be a great idea to do a video a week. This spot is about a quarter mile south of the Powley Piseco roads iron bridge. There's a little camping spot there and a trail behind the camping spot leads down to this spot of flat water. We were there on August 2nd & 3rd and we just missed the peak for the bottled gentian that flowers down here. Well worth a Sunday side trip to canoe, camp, or just take pics of this rare NY state flower. I know there will be better video's but I figured that this would at least get us started. Swiz

It was good to meet you too. I think it'd be cool if we could plan a nice trip sometime soon. I'm pretty well game for anyplace from the Cedar Lakes on south. I'd love to make some more of these video's before the snow starts to fly again. One place I've had in mind for a while is Spruce lake a few miles north of Piseco Lake. There's 3 deep holes and several 15 to 19 inch brookies have been caught out of there. There's gotta be a few bigger ones in there somewhere's. I have a small waterproof camcorder that should make some decent video's of brookies being brought to the boat. I think that one is a 3 and a half mile hike to the lake and there's 3 lean-to's. Give me a couple months of working out and I might hike in my canoe. That'll add 66lbs to my pack weight. If I can keep my pack under 34lbs it should be doable. Swiz

Cool Swiz!
I've been to Spruce Lake a few times, and I've been wanting to get back to that area to explore a few more areas nearby.
Whenever you want to go, just let me know!
No need to bring the canoe, I'm sure there are still a couple hidden there!

I can't wait to see some more submissions. This should be a good way to chase away cabin fever at the end of the year. Just review this thread and see all the places that we've all gone. Come on Guys!! I know you got some more to add!! Swiz

And with this, I have exhausted my collection of Adirondack videos

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UN9SYeAezQ

My old DSLR didn't have a video capability, but the one I just got last summer does. It even does HD. I still haven't gotten in the habit of using it; I didn't even think of getting any marmot videos when I was out west last year. Oh well. I'll try to remember it this summer, 1080p HD + telephoto lens could make for some sweet videos of these guys!

I like your time lapse films. You ever think of doing one along a nice floe at sunrise or sunset? Swiz

I know, the focus could be better, but you get the idea.

I love loons, they remind me of family. They also scared the crap out of me the first time I ever heard one on a hike to Wilcox lake. Swiz
