Lovable, Drinkable Lake George

Set in New York's Adirondack Mountains, Lake George is 32 miles long from the town of Lake George at the southern end to Ticonderoga on the north, and it never gets wider than 3 miles. Busy route 9N on the western shore draws tourists to its motels and antique stores, and the eastern side is mostly a remote areaŚno stores, just dwellings and limited public access. In Ticonderoga, the lake is reduced to a thin, rocky river that connects to its northern neighbor, Lake Champlain. One fine September my wife, Sarah, and I went the distance of George on board a Hunter 260 trailersailer. We had timed our visit to avoid the lake's summer powerboat population and to catch the turning of the leaves. These are precious days to the locals; fall can pass quickly in upstate New York, leaving only a narrow window to breath in the fresh Adirondack air, enjoy the lake and its surrounding foliage without the bother of a crowd, and dip in a glass to drink the water.    more...

I grew up on Lake George all the young summers of my life. The article said the deepest spot was 195'. Locals always said it was 300' by Dome Island off of Bolton Landing. Still one of the cleanest and most bueatiful lakes in the world.8/23/2005 3:54:56 PM
