I didn't take photos of towns because I don't spend much time in them, I have a limited time to spend up there and want to spend it in the woods as much as possible. I have passed through several towns in the western and central ADKs and overall they look in much better shape than the towns here in northern Oswego county where I live. Lots of tourist traps and vacation homes, but that is where the money comes from as I know from growing up in Maine.

Kind of the same as comparing the Adirondack villages (that I frequent) as to where I live in Central NY. I go to the central Adirondacks a lot and own some land and cabin there. Villages like Speculator, north Creek, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Wells, Lake Pleasant, Racquette Lake, etc. all in nicer condition then where I live. But yeah - a lot of that is because of tourist dollars and/or city people with vacation homes. Where I live in central New York things were booming back when dairy farming was the main "industry." Our town was much more upscale in the 1800s then it is now. That is fine with me, by the way. I don't need nor want "upscale." Just wish my taxes would reflect that. If I wanted "upscale" I could live 20 miles away in the tourist trap of Cooperstown where the Farmers Museum and Baseball Hall of Fame is. NO thanks.

John,
Couldn't agree with you more about Cooperstown. They seam to think they own all the surounding area, and can dictate what happens even on my little corner of the woods and Our 1200A family farm north of the lake.
The wifes side of the family ownes a small off-grid camp on the Gillmantown Rd. between Wells and Speculator. I hope to have more time in the future to spend up there

I go through Gilmantown Road every time I drive up there. It's a soft of "long cut" around the Wells area. I'd almost bought land there a few years ago that just touched a small lake. Gilmantown Lake (I think).

Some years ago I met a farmer who runs a farm on the very end of Otsego Lake. I bought a Case tractor from him. A DC with a dropped valve as I recall. Maybe the farm was in Sringfield Center or Richfield? I think he told me it was one of the last farms there. I think I recall the name Tim Richards on Public Landing Road - but my memory could be off. Fasset Farm maybe?

Tim R is my cousin. we're the same age, started school together and graduated HS together. He and his son are still Leasing that farm, which belongs to the Cunningham Family.
One of the lakes at the top of the hill is Charlie Lake and there was a trail that led from the road to Dunning? Pond. The Family Camp is just above the road into the resivoir, as you climb up from Wells.
