        I second the vote for views from the Pinnacle, especially of the great range.
        Love all wilderness!
        Trying to hike and XC ski as much as possible.

            Two of my favorites are the view of the Flowed Lands after you pop out of the Clamity Brook trail, and the view of Elk Lake from the slide on Macomb.

                Avalanche Lake in Winter is my favorite so far, but I do also love the view from Frederica Mountain looking out over beautiful Lake Lila and the range beyond that.

                  Some sights that I didn’t notice having been mentioned above:

                  Macomb or whatever it is straight ahead up the highway from near the Schroon Lake rest area. The first of many landmarks along the way that we’re once again in the High Peaks.

                  The walkways and Hitch-up Matildas along Avalanche Lake.

                  Nippletop across Elk Lake from the lodge’s dock.

                  The wrecks of the Hesperus that are the buildings in Adirondac.

                        Giants Washbowl is a gorgeous sight for me--the suddenness of this quiet scenic spot whether you're going up or down Giant. Calm, peaceful, serene. Love it.

                            I'm just trying to learn how to post pics from Picasa. It is a nice view though—from the south face of Rocky:
