Locked or Unlocked?

Saranac Lake upper locks

An On-site Saranac Lake Upper Locks Construction Project Update

I made a road trip home this past weekend (June 8th, 2024).  With camping season upon us and the Saranac Chain of Lakes projected upper locks opening date seemly something of a moving target, my brother and I (and his dog Pepper) decided it would be prudent to conduct our own scout recon mission of Saranac Lake’s upper locks construction and get eyes on target.

We achieved mission success and even outraced the rain home to get back down through the lower locks to Lake Flower without getting wet!
