Ice out appears to be at least a couple of weeks away on many of lakes and ponds in the Adirondacks. However, Long Lake has lost some of its ice cover north of the Route 30 bridge.

Long Lake is part of the Raquette River, which flows north through the High Peaks Wilderness toward Coreys on its way toward Tupper Lake and northwestern Adirondacks. Above are some photos from the Long Lake town beach on Monday, April 2.
