A Trip Up North - North Creek

So we just got back from a four day adventure up into the Adirondacks. Our first stop was in North Creek, which I must admit (begrudgingly) was my idea. When looking for places to stay, I happened upon a place called the Alpine Lodge. I got it mixed up with another hotel I was looking at online, and we ended up there. Our entire stay at the lodge we did not happen upon a person working there. Our room number and key code were emailed to us, and there was no check in or out. Very strange.
The town was interesting, to say the least. Everything was closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the day we arrived and the day we left. There were a good number of shops and stores and places to eat, but we had to order pizza (which turned out to be amazing!) because aside from the grocery store, it was the only thing open!!!
The town has some historical interest- it was/is home to the train station where Roosevelt learned Mckinley had died and he had become president. We took a few picutres down near the rail station and overall had a good time, despite.
