Landowners unite!
The Landowners around the lake are very picky about their privacy, it would seem. Although there is a trail, there are warning signs of every sort everywhere. [enlarge]
Owner's Pleasure
Some signs are not precisely warm and inviting. However, at this time of the year, we don't see a single person. [enlarge]
Lake Placid and the High Peaks
This is a shot taken from the shore of Lake Placid, looking towards the highest peaks of the Adirondacks. Visible in the picture are Wright Peak and Mt Colden, along with Algonquin Peak (although its summit is in the clouds). The weather, as you can see, continues to turn. [enlarge]
Developed Lakeshore
The shore of the Lake from this point onwards becomes increasingly developed, mostly with very elegant and expensive "cottages" (if I can call them that). [enlarge]
A "cottage"
This is an example of what I mean. Not cheap, not small, not bare-bones. [enlarge]
Civilized Trail
As the trail passes through these fancy summer residences, the quality of the trail changes to a type not usually found in the Adirondacks. [enlarge]
More rustic opulence....
And more....
Boathouse and Whiteface
Here we have a quaint little "boathouse" (I use the term loosely) on the shore of Lake Placid, with Whiteface mountain rising in the background. [enlarge]
