My preferred route to the high peaks area is Rte 9n and Rte 73 which offer great twisties, world class views and some classic Adirondack lakes and small towns, most notably Schroon Lake and in the town of Chester Loon Lake.
There are also some areas where it seems that their best days have passed long ago, but these are areas I'll cover later.
For now I'll start here where you pick up rte 73
Where you begin....
A couple hundred feet up the road I stopped for lunch at ....
And these are the lovely ladies who run Big Mamas, I've forgotten their names but I do remember what delightful people they are, good burger and fries if anyone is up that way it's well worth stopping.
and these are just a few of the sights from the road..
