Jackie explored "one of the prettiest lakes of the Adirondacks" -- and there were cranberries.

Chuck journeyed to the Boreas Ponds for a photo hike.

Jen hiked Cliff Mountain.

Julie found her way to Mohawk River State Park.

Silvia checked out events in three different counties on the same day.

Katie on the recent Trump comments about women and this election: "I'll just say in general that maybe this candidacy can serve to stir things up and help people who have never been harassed based on gender/ethnicity/religion/whatever to become a little more aware of how fortunate they are. And maybe we'll all do a better job of calling shit out."

Kristi noted that the city of Albany needs to adjust some of its official communication regarding marriage licenses.

Daniel announced the lineup for the next Tour de Donut.

Zena made her way through the crowds at Indian Ladder Farms.

Melinda tried the new Westfall Station Cafe in Averill Park.

It sounds like Jerry was underwhelmed at Cilantromex.

Carl combed through the history of "the well-known resident of Catherine street."

And the Friends of Albany History noted another prominent marriage performed in the Schuyler Mansion.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
