Adirondack Preserve and Park- Marcy Dam

The Adirondacks are one of the oldest preserved regions in the United States.  Explicitly protected in the New York State Constitution for more then a century, they have been a destination for people from around the globe and have some of the most picturesque locations in the North East.  From Lake George to Lake Placid, and from the heights of Mt. Marcy to the shores of Lake Champlain the Adirondacks are an amazing area that deserve our respect and protection.

The forests and mountains reflect in the glass like waters of Marcy Dam Pond, less then two weeks before Hurricane Irene damaged the dam, causing the pond to drain away.   In the year following the hurricane the dam was repaired and the lake returned.

Want to visit Marcy Dam (you know you want to)? The Adirondack Mountain Club maintains a lodge about 3 miles away. http://www.adk.org/page.php?pname=adirondak-loj  I’m not affiliated with ADK, but if they want to carry my work I’m sure we can make a deal.

  1. Point of clarification: I stated above that the pond has refilled. I was mistaken, the pond has not been restored.
