    I’ve seen this one before, from the Mountaineer on Route 73.

    Ms Hart,
    Thank you for your post. Here is a camera to check out. It sits in a classroom at the Wanakena Ranger School and views Cranberry Lake at the inlet of the Oswegatchie River. It looks to be ice free now, meaning the river should be the same. (
    I look at the Stillwater camera every day. Now you have given us more cameras that I did not know about. Thank you so much in these icy times.
    By the way, since the Wanakena camera sits inside the glass, at night one can see reflections our future rangers studying to protect our lands, if not their identities.

    Hi Melissa:
    Thanks for the webcam links. Here are several I look at periodically, especially when planning a trip.

    Halls Boat Yard – Lake George:

    Steamship Pier – Lake George:

    For those Lake Placid bound:

    Gore Mountain – for those skiers out there (next season or even this Fall)
