Adirondack Park and Preserve- “Above Lake George” with bonus material

Lake George centers in so many of our minds as the setting of James Fennimore Cooper’s classic novel “Last of the Mohicans”.  From Fort William Henry at the south end of the lake to Fort Ticondaroga in the north the area was fought over by the English Americans and French along  with their various real and fictional Indian allies for more then a century.  In this view one can see the Lake and some of the hundred or so islands that dot its length.  A century ago this mountain top was part of a large private estate that included a cable-car system that brought family members to its summit. Those days are gone, but there is a wonderfully wide trail that leads from the road to the summit.

High above the chilly waters of Lake George a pair of trees stand sentinel near the top of Shelving Rock. Lake George is well known as a tourism destination in the Adirondack Park and Preserve and was immortalized by James Fenimore Cooper's classic novel Last of the Mohicans.
