no supper

so we drove into the mountains
 and it was cold
 and the late day light 
picked out bits of brilliant color
 and then in the distance
 the mountains took on a decidedly 
stunning appearance
 i haven't seen the adirondacks
look so amazing in ages
new snow on the high peaks
in the distance 
but sadness at our goal:
saranac lake and casa del sol,
my favorite restaurant,
has closed.
i first went there over thirty years ago,
i took my kids when they were babies and
celebrated many special days there
end of an era.
