Saratoga Springs, NY, has one of the oldest horse racing courses in the country, and it's right in town along with an equestrian museum and hall of fame. I expect Brenda will trot me right on over there. Coming into town we passed the Spa State Park, featuring mineral springs and "geyser-like spouters." I can **********tain myself. Outside of town there's an Historical Park with a 3200 acre Revolutionary War battlefield. AND, there's a car museum! What a cool town! ...

Yesterday we took a drive to Lake Placid, site of the 1980 Olympics (also 1932). It was really crowded with people so it must be the place to get away from it all.

Today we just relaxed a bit and explored the area around our campground.
Tomorrow we are off to Vermont.
