Let’s visit around and tour Lake George area in the Southern Adirondacks in New York State. We visited here this past July and it was a busy and lovely area. This is a panoramic view of the South end of Lake George looking North. The famous boat Minne Ha Ha was ready to steam out on a lake tour. View large if possible.
At the summit of Cadillac Mountain they had this nice plaque discussing the history of Acadia National Park and Cadallic Mountain. Here George Dorr talks with Franklin Lane about the formation if Acadia National Park in Maine. John S. Kennedy a New York banker had bought the mountain and three others in 1908 and left them in his will to the state for a Park for everyone.
After driving more on the road in Acadia National Park in Maine, we go up the steep road to Cadillac Mountain. Here there were breathtaking views of the Park and the bay beyond. Here you could see Bar Harbor way off in the distance and a Holland America ship anchored offshore. The red dot was a sailing vessel going by with bright red sails.
One of the hidden gems in Acadia National Park in Maine was the Carriage Roads still present and maintained. From 1913 to 1940 John Rockafeller Jr had 57 miles of carriage roads made in what is now Acadia National Park. No motorized vehicles were allowed then or now on them. They are maintained still and have original wide granite bridges and features. You can take carriage or bike rides on them near Jordan Pond and walk along them.
