The ride was really nice (though there were some rowdy senior citizens -- really). The train doesn't go all that fast, so there's time to take in the scenery as it slides by. The trip from Saratoga to North Creek took about two hours.
The rail line follows the Hudson River into the Adirondacks. (If you ever take the the train, try to sit on the east side of the car -- the river side -- it has the best view.)
The tracks pass by wetlands, homes, camps, and little resorts.
The AOA-organized trip to North Creek on the Saratoga and North Creek Railway was this past Saturday. It was a nice time -- and we had some good wine and cheese at barVino. Thanks to everyone who came along.
