This August I took my 4th trip to the Adirondacks on my bicycle. I did about 95 miles the first day and the total for the week was about 330. I use the bike to get to the trailheads and then hike and camp on state land in various spots up there. It's my favorite part of the year.

I have heard that most of those lakes are dead, no fish, is that true? I heard it is from the acid rain from burning coal for 200 years.

In the 70's and 80's it was pretty bad, they 'nuetralized' the water since then, and the factory scrubbers- (of what's left of midwestern or eastern Canadian industry huh?) used nowdays cleaned it good latley. The state restocks nearly all the lakes and streams, fish are as nice now as ever before. You can still see browns in the evergreen trees damaged years ago, but the trees that die from the months of rocksalt on the roads is worse. There are 3 great things about the Adirondacks....... June July and August.

Zack, that little rock island, was that one of the Saranac lakes? I remember something like that from a previous life....

Thanks for sharing the great pictures. Sounds like something I'd like to do. I like to "minimal camp." take just one of those sandwich makers to use over the fire. French toast, eggs, etc. are all possible.

There are lots of spots like that in lakes up there, this one is in Seventh Lake outside Inlet. I have never been to the Saranac area but have heard that it is very nice.

You know, it's really great that everyone thinks it's pretty. Try living there. The Adirondack Park Agency and NYS combine together to make pretty much everything illegal, expensive, impossible or incredibly difficult. The State, which is broke and won't even discuss worker compensation issues, school aide, mandate reform, etc, just announced they are in contract to buy 70,000 more acres of land! This land will likely be put in "Wilderness" classification, all the roads will be closed (it's a timber co tract), no travel other than by foot will be authorized. 70K more acres taken out of production forever. And the really neat part is the NYS tax payers will not only foot the bill for that and the new welfare recipients closing this land will create, but they will pay increased taxes to cover the tax bill on the land. That's right, NYS taxes the taxpayers to pay the land taxes on State owned lands to towns within the Park!!!

I grew up in the Park and lived there till 1995. At that time the current govs daddy Mario Cuomo had something called the "21st Century Bond Act" up for vote. It was a very far reaching effort to turn the Park into what essentially would be nothing more than a shanty town of worker bees, kept out of sight and limited in every way, to support the extremely wealthy in their vacation homes. The State would have even more control over your private lands. It was voted down, barely, but now I see the UNs Agenda 21 coming out with most of the same ideas. Scary.

It's pretty alright. I miss it. I note Zach didn't include and pictures of the towns and villages along the way. That's probably because most of them resemble something out of a 1950's Appalachia photo essay. Most of them are dying or have already died. And with no disrespect towards Zach or the others that like it and use it, consider this- The gore-tex and granola crowd gets to use all those state maintained trails, campsites, etc. at no charge. Meanwhile I have to buy a $29.00 Fishing license to fish on my own farm. IMO anyone using state lands in any way should have to have a land use license or a hunting/fishing/trapping license. The sportsmen of NY have been paying their way for 100 years. It's time the hiking/camping/canoeing/rafting/mountain biking/cross country skiing crowd started paying their fair share.

Rant off.
