One of the nicest place to celebrate our nation's birthday is the Ausable Club in St Huberts, NY.
The club holds a massive public fireworks show each year, allowing the riff-raff such as I to spread
blankets on their lush golf course and enjoy a Grucci-style extravaganza of explosions and light.
This year, I brought my Zoom H4n recorder. This file captures the last few minutes, including the
the cannons are about front and center. The initial explosions are overhead, with a first echo off
trees and buildings to the right and a long wave of echo to the left as the airwaves rush down the
valley and over Lower and Upper Ausable Lakes toward the lower slopes of Mt. Marcy, NY's rooftop.
