Fog over Whiteface Mountain


I have fond memories of road trips up Whiteface Mountain as a kid. Radiators weren’t what they are now, and cars periodically overheated the whole way up, so the prudent parent brought sandwiches and drinks for impromptu picnics on the way.

When you finally arrived at the top, you were entitled to buy a bumper-sticker that read “this car climbed Whiteface Mountain.” Then you’d hike the last several hundred feet to the summit, from which you could see all the way to Montreal on a clear day. You have an unimpeded view in every direction, so it really is quite spectacular.

After that, if your parents were feeling flush, you’d stop at Santa’s Workshop in nearby Wilmington, NY, where deer and other animals wandered around the ‘North Pole’.

And that, kids, is what people did for vacation in the old days.

Fog over Whiteface Mountain was painted from the Saranac Lake Fish and Game Club on a summer morning when Whiteface wanted to play peek-a-boo.
