Lake Placid, NY

photo of Lake Placid, NYSome of the most dramatic scenery in the Eastern United States can be found in and around the Lake Placid area within the Adirondack Mountains of New York. Just east, south, and north of the village are the highest mountains in the state as well as raging rivers and pristine woods. The photo shown here, which was taken in the late 1990s, shows typical view from Route 86 between Lake Placid and Wilmington, heading toward Whiteface Mountain, a ski area with the biggest vertical drop east of the Rockies.
