The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

One lake, one cape, one Adirondack-New England vacation

Where does a West Coast travel writer go on vacation? East. To water. My family's summer holiday began with a flight to Boston, followed by stops at Lake George (in the Adirondacks of upstate New York) and Rockport (on Cape Ann, an hour north of Boston). About halfway through our 255-mile drive from lake to the cape, we took a breather in postcard-perfect Woodstock, Vermont, and panned for gold at Quechee Gorge. Here are 36 pictures with travel ideas for lake, cape and in between. -- Christopher Reynolds, Los Angeles Times
