|Here we are in Keene Valley. I did not know until today that Keene and Keene Valley were two separate towns. I had not been there for many years.|
|We had to stop in here and get the best scones around but when we went to pay, they would only take cards. Luckily, I had mine with me.|
|Here I am in front of a really cool building right after it stopped pouring down rain. Oh well, rain is |
fair game fpr walkabouts. We have rain gear just for that sort of thing.
|We did not go in this place, but I liked the sign so I snapped a picture.|
|We are at the East Branch of the Ausable River. The way the river flows here reminded Venita and I |
of Scotland and the River Dee.
|This building was so unique!|
|Do we have a post office here open on Sunday???|
|Here we are in Keene where you can get a flu shot and your mail all at the same time.|
|This is the Keene Community Center that looks like it was maybe a school at one time.|

in the highlands of Scotland.
|These people are very patriotic. This store is filled with Adirondacky items!|
This is the Ausable Club, in St Huberts and the clubhouse of the Adirondack Mountain Reserve formed in 1887 by George Neilson to save the lands around Beede's Hotel from the lumber industry.St Huberts is a hamlet within Keene.
Good bye Keenites and St. Hubertites. Thank you for a wonderful walkabout!

Hello and welcome back to my walkabout blog. My sister and I are walking the towns and hamlets of the Adirondack Park. Today we saw some beautiful country.
Here I am standing in front of the Brant Lake monument of the 150 year anniversary.
