Western Adirondacks..... I thought the worst was over, as it usually is in the beginning of July. But nearly twice the avarage rainfall during the month (over 7" around here) means lots of ponding in the woods. Where ever there is a small depression between trees, it contains standing water and mosquitoes abound in the whole area. Surprisingly, I even went through a swarm of black flies. But thankfully, the deer flies seem to be gone, as they should be at the time of the season.
