Covering more ground than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon combined, the Adirondack Park is one of the great untouched wilderness areas in this country. Each year it attracts millions of visitors who come to hike, canoe, ski, or just enjoy the views. This panoramic volume presents a beautiful selection of images, including ten 360-degree shots. The images capture the tree-covered mountains in full autumnal glory, rivers hushed by winter snow, and verdant meadows alive with spring, as well as historic resorts and quaint villages. Each chapter covers a different corner from Lake Placid and the High Peaks to Saranac Lake, Lake George, and the Fulton Chain. To appreciate the wonders of the Adirondacks through the lens of one of the area's most accomplished photographers is like exploring them for the first time.
