I visited the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat on Friday, December 15, for to get photos for an article about the wellness tourism economy that is to appear in the January issue. Temperatures had recently dipped in the single digits, causing Lake Clear to freeze over. A fresh snowfall also covered the ground in this quiet and peaceful neck of the woods. Although there was just enough snow to ski in the woods, the railroad tracks weren’t completely covered. So I doubt either snowmobiling or skiing would be possible on them.
Perhaps the highlight of the winter view across Lake Clear is St. Regis Mountain, a popular hiking destination that I visited last February. To see a photo gallery of St. Regis Mountain covered in snow, click here.
