Lake George

This is the lower end of Lake George as seen from the ramparts of Fort William Henry, in the village of Lake George, NY. It's pretty typical of a summer day on the lake, hot, hazy and tourists parasailing.

This is probably the tourist spot for the eastern half of the Adirondacks. Million Dollar Beach, boat rides - the Lake George Steamship Company operates a paddle-wheel steamboat named Minne-Ha-Ha! Minnehaha is the lover of Longfellow's fictional Hiawatha. There was a real Hiawatha, and he co-founded the Iroquois League, centred mostly here in upstate NY.


  1. I lived in Niagara Falls for a while and i couldn't believe how hot it got up there in the summer.

  2. How's the water, in case the para-sailors end up missing the landing? ;-)


The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
