Near Old Forge, NY in the Southern Adirondacks is the Ski Resort at McCauley Mountain. In the short Summer and Fall when there is no snow, you can go up the mountain on the ski lifts to take in the views from the top. From the top you can look to the North East and see the beginning of the Fulton Chain of Lakes. Old Forge is the start of the Chain with 1st, 2nd and even the 3rd lake in view. The trees are just starting to change color.
