Adirondack State Park

47 miles
It's pretty rural here through the Park. We had the opportunity to see a sculpture garden, Ausable Chasm, the Serenity Garden, acres of apple trees, corn, and a few vineyards. It's beautiful farming country, then wooded stretches, and many hills! Hot and sunny with a strong South head wind!!!

The first thing we saw was this sculpture garden. Across this huge field MANY sculptures made from scarp metal and old farm equipment.

And this looked like a rendering of The Last Supper. When we got closer that's just what it was.

Then to get to a pedestrian foot bridge across the river we had to walk down a very steep access that also has a steep stairway-about ten steps. Margaret Smith stayed behind to help everyone down and then finally she came across the pedestrian foot bridge. Many thanks!!

Finally we got to Ausable Chasm and walked out on the bridge to see it. This pic is of all the riders getting their photos.

Gathering after viewing the gorge waiting to cross the bridge which was limited to one lane traffic due to construction on the bridge.
