We stayed over night at Hampton Inn on Mirror Lake in the Lake Placid areas. It took about 6 hours to drive to Lake Placid. Very cool largish town. Lots of character and evidence of the two Winter Olympics which have been held here. We wandered around the streets looking for nick nacks and enjoyed the coolness of the mountain air. We had been quite hot at times at Niagara, but we have travelled north and the air is cooler. Nice though.
