Finally, the Heatwave Has Lifted!

And for me, that means getting back outdoors both on the trails and with my camera. The first trips of the relatively cooler almost-fall 2016 season was to the Adirondacks and a stop at Montezuma NWR. In the Adirondacks, shooting friend Rod and I hiked up Bald Mt. to the Rondaxe Fire Tower, a trip I've never made after living in NY for over 5 years! (Ironic, since I've had to drive right past it to get to all of the other hiking trails I've done.) We also made a stop in the rain to get the Adirondack Scenic RR (http://www.adirondackrr.com/) coming through the forest.
Next, on my way home from a business trip to Buffalo, NY, I made a swing through Montezuma NWR and captured a couple of new birds and my best shot yet, of a Red-Tailed Hawk. A good start to the fall season! Please enjoy...
We start with an iPhone selfie from the top of Bald Mt. looking toward the Fulton Chain of Lakes.
And a panorama - can you see Rod over on the right?

Best shot by far (so far) of a Red-Tailed Hawk.
Leaf-peeping is just around the corner! Lots more photos to come!
