Rode a portion of the D&H; Saranac Lake branch. Used to go from Plattsburgh to Saranac Lake. You know the long straight road that goes in front of the hospital in Saranac? That's the old railbed. And where it sharply curves to the left and goes up the hill? That's the old road. The railroad continued straight ahead on a cut through the hill.

It was below freezing. I had hoped that the sandy bits would be frozen, but being sand, they don't hold enough water to actually freeze into a solid surface. Fortunately, there wasn't as much sand as I feared.
