Name that Place: Day 2

Can you name this island? Hint: It’s located on one of the most scenic lakes in the Adirondacks, and the island itself has rarely ever been visited by humans due to its protected status.

Each day this week we’re posting a photo of a “mystery location.”

Let us know where it is by leaving a comment in that post. Come back each day for the answer and a new photo/entry.

At the end of the week, we’ll draw a winner for a grab bag of Adirondack Explorer swag and books by Bill McKibben and Phil Terrie.

As a bonus, the first person who gets all 5 entries correct receives special recognition!

Yesterday’s photo was of Permanent Rapids on the Saranac River in Bloomingdale.

    Dome Island. 45 years ago we stopped our canoe here to marvel at the rocky shore and the depth at which we could see into the gorgeous, crystal-clear water. How fortunate we are to live on such a special rock such as this!
