You know, it's really great that everyone thinks it's pretty. Try living there. The Adirondack Park Agency and NYS combine together to make pretty much everything illegal, expensive, impossible or incredibly difficult. The State, which is broke and won't even discuss worker compensation issues, school aide, mandate reform, etc, just announced they are in contract to buy 70,000 more acres of land! This land will likely be put in "Wilderness" classification, all the roads will be closed (it's a timber co tract), no travel other than by foot will be authorized. 70K more acres taken out of production forever. And the really neat part is the NYS tax payers will not only foot the bill for that and the new welfare recipients closing this land will create, but they will pay increased taxes to cover the tax bill on the land. That's right, NYS taxes the taxpayers to pay the land taxes on State owned lands to towns within the Park!!!

I grew up in the Park and lived there till 1995. At that time the current govs daddy Mario Cuomo had something called the "21st Century Bond Act" up for vote. It was a very far reaching effort to turn the Park into what essentially would be nothing more than a shanty town of worker bees, kept out of sight and limited in every way, to support the extremely wealthy in their vacation homes. The State would have even more control over your private lands. It was voted down, barely, but now I see the UNs Agenda 21 coming out with most of the same ideas. Scary.

It's pretty alright. I miss it. I note Zach didn't include and pictures of the towns and villages along the way. That's probably because most of them resemble something out of a 1950's Appalachia photo essay. Most of them are dying or have already died. And with no disrespect towards Zach or the others that like it and use it, consider this- The gore-tex and granola crowd gets to use all those state maintained trails, campsites, etc. at no charge. Meanwhile I have to buy a $29.00 Fishing license to fish on my own farm. IMO anyone using state lands in any way should have to have a land use license or a hunting/fishing/trapping license. The sportsmen of NY have been paying their way for 100 years. It's time the hiking/camping/canoeing/rafting/mountain biking/cross country skiing crowd started paying their fair share.

Rant off.
