It's that time of the year when a lot of us head towards water and hang out at your own family camps, or homes that our relatives have on the many beautiful lakes around the Albany area.

They are all beautiful in their own way, and each one is special to someone out there. I spent a lot of time on Lake George, Lake Nebo, Copeland Pond and Hadlock Pond as a kid and still do as an adult. I get to catch up with friends and family I literally haven't seen in a year. There's something

special about the power of a beautiful lake or pond especially in the Adirondacks. What's your favorite lake to hang at with your family and friends in the Summer months? I would love to hear from you and if you have some pictures feel free to send them to me as well via email to jake@wgna.com . I will feature some of them and give your favorite lakes a shout out in future stories this summer right here on WGNA.com
