Summer in the Adirondacks – Views of Blue Mountain Lake

IMG_2607

The hamlet of Blue Mountain Lake is the quintessential Adirondack town. Situated in the center of the Adirondack Park it overlooks one of the state's most beautiful bodies of water. It is also home to the incredible Adirondack Museum, one of the best museums of its kind anywhere. As a way to get a quick and accurate feel for what makes the Adirondack Park unique and wonderful, there is nothing better than a visit to this museum and town. The drive is lovely, the museum is thorough and informative without being preachy or stale and the gift shop is outstanding, offering many well-made and delightful items distinct to the area at reasonable prices. Even the cafeteria is worthwhile! No first time visit to the Adirondacks should miss this introduction to the history, culture and style of the region.
