Photographically, November started out with some drama as the Halloween storm caused damage throughout the region, especially in Hamilton County. That was followed a couple weeks later by a scenic snowfall that blanketed the region. In between and afterward, the Adirondack Explorer staff was out working on stories about farms, forest pests, a trail system in Tupper Lake, and the Adirondack Center for Writing. You can see images related to those stories in the above gallery.
