Wonderful Adirondack Sights Along Route 73

We were on our way home from the farm, the dogs and I, after a marvelous weekend up at the farm. It may have been brown November in the Adirondacks, but the views in the high peaks region were wonderful nonetheless:

I pulled off the road near a (golf) driving range to snap a photo of the surrounding mountains. I believe that those are leaves scattered on the ground. not golf balls and not apples:

The air was clear and the scenery was spectacular:

Whiteface Mountain appeared just over the tops of birch and spruce trees. Whiteface is the one high peak which has a road to its peak. There's a tower at the top visible for miles though it doesn't show up well in this photo:

The dogs were watching my every move, anxious that I might leave them and hopeful that I might let them out for a romp:

A small stream rushed down through the rocks right alongside the road:

And rocky mountaintops appeared at very close range just over the tree tops:

I don't know if there are any trails up those mountains, but the abundance of treeless rocky surfaces would provide an abundance of magnificent Adirondack views:
