Songbirds compete with strutting turkeys at feeders

Falls at Bug Lake

Well, we finally had a week of winter (all at the same time) and even got the snowmobilers out and about until they wore it down to dirt on most of the trails. Many folks to the south of us in the Capital District got ice at the end of the snowstorm, which took down many powerlines, putting many out of power for a couple of days…and some longer. In most places, the temperature got into the single digits and didn’t get above freezing during daylight hours.

Ice was out of many lakes and with these cold temperatures along with the snow that cooled down the surface water temperatures, they all refroze. As of today, March 26, most are still covered with ice and the only open water is in the Moose River and the channel in Inlet where lots of waterfowl moved to find food. I had a Belted Kingfisher over my frozen pond just before the storm, and he wasn’t going to catch any fish there. I did find some Mallards in the beaver ponds on the outlet of Eighth Lake.

Inlet’s Frozen Fire & Lights, ice fishing with Grandson Jake

Kites flying before the big Outhouse race

Another “January” thaw is upon us, with temperatures in the forties and maybe up in the sixties before weeks’ end. It is pretty hard to have winter events without snow and ice. Luckily, it held up through this weekend, so Inlet’s Frozen Fire and Lights got through all the events without a hitch. The cardboard sled races at Fern Park were fast for those who kept their cardboard crafts headed straight down the icy hill. Some went across the finish line in a little over six seconds and into the crowd watching at the tail end of the race. Some flipped before crossing the finish line, but dragged their sleds across the line for time.

Historic Signage To Be Installed at Inlet’s Arrowhead Park

arrowhead park sign in lnlet

For the first time in its sixty years as Town of Inlet property, Arrowhead Park this spring will have a sign providing its annual visitors with the history of the popular hotels formerly occupying this location. This article acquaints you with the Park, its history, and describes the efforts resulting in historical signage. It may also be a “lessons learned” example in project management for small nonprofits.

The Head of Fourth Lake

For those unfamiliar with Inlet’s location, the hamlet is at the Head of Fourth Lake of the Fulton Chain of Lakes in the West Central Adirondacks. Its name comes from its location at the mouth of the inlet channel flowing from Fifth to Fourth Lake of that chain. Prior to the Town’s establishment in 1902, the Head of Fourth lake was the destination for Native Americans, then guides and hunters and later vacationers on steamers traveling on the chain’s lower lakes, departing from what is today’s Old Forge location. Presently, each September, Inlet is the first takeout for participants in the annual 90 Miler Adirondack Canoe Classic.

By Adele Burnett, Town of Inlet Tourism Director

The Town of Inlet Parks Department is excited to have in the works – the Arrowhead Park Playground Project.

[Children have the opportunity to] exercise, make friends, laugh, and run as their parents and neighbors catch-up over a cup of coffee.
