May 04 Photographer’s Guide to Lake George’s Eastern Shore
The Adirondack Park is a sightseer’s paradise. Rolling mountains, bubbling streams, and clear blue lakes make up the 6 million acres of the “forever wild” forest preserve.
Lake George sits at the southeastern point of the Adirondack Park, and has long been called the “Queen of American Lakes.” Since the late 1800s, tourists have made their way to villages along the shores to enjoy lakeside dining, sweeping vistas, and steamboat cruises. Because of the area’s ongoing popularity, it can be tough to find roads and trails less traveled. Unless you explore the lake’s eastern shore!
Away from scenic route 9N on the west side of the lake, enjoy some roads (and trails, and bays) less traveled.
Tougher Hikes/Mountain Views
Don’t let the photos fool you, it takes a bit of time and stamina to enjoy these panoramic views of Lake George. If you’re up for the challenge, your clients, followers, and camera are sure to thank you for it.
