This is a view of Blue Mountain Lake from the Adirondack Guideboat Museum (now Adirondack Museum). Its a nice late Fall day here with the weather being a very chilly 35 degrees F in the morning but a glorious 68 degrees F in the afternoon. This is one of the most beautiful “sheets of water” in the Adirondacks as Nessmuck used to say in the 1880’s. Nessmuck (Washington Sears) was a famous outdoorsman and explorer in the late 1800’s in Pennsylvania and the Adirondacks and he made many famous journeys in his tiny 9 # wooden canoe and wrote a series of articles in Forrest and Stream Magazine at the time. His canoe Sairy Gamp is still on display at the Adirondack Museum. This lake is also at the base of the hikable Blue Mountain which has great views of many other mountains and lakes in the area.
