Photograph the "Plains of Abraham"
New York › Plains of Abraham
Added by Rebecca Nichols
Photograph this scenic vista featuring some of New York's high peaks.
Originally, the area where modern-day Lake Placid is located was called The Plains of Abraham.
Turn onto Adirondack Loj Rd off of scenic RT 73 and you will see a beautiful landscape of the Adirondack high peaks.
You will see the MacIntyre Range featuring Wright, Algonquin (New York's 2nd highest peak), Boundary & Iroquois. Colden and its many slides are also easily seen.

Lake Placid is my favorite place in the US so I might be a little bias with this review. I have a leather & metal band with the Mirror Lake coordinate on it that I never take off. Regardless of my love of the area the views from this field and other areas along the Adirondack Loj Rd are beautiful. The fall is obliviously incredible but the winter months also provide some great photos with the snow on top of the mountains.

Once you are at the parking area you can choose to start the loop in either direction. I like the idea of leaving the Mansion for last so that is what I did.
