Kathryn Crooke // LAKE PLACID

Out of many places,

this one has no shortage of mountain faces.


One of them is covered in white,

at five thousand feet, you will be in awe of the height.


There is a lake in the town,

where you will never see a frown.


Most know about this place for winter events,

but in the summer some even pitch a tent.


It’s secluded in the adirondacks,

for hiking you will definitely need multiple knapsacks.


My home away from home is six hours away,

but when we arrive there we always say “hooray”!
