Adk Meadows
 
This weekend i was browsing through a coffee table book a friend had about Seneca Ray's photography and one thing that got my attention was all the photos that showed big expansive meadows in the Adirondacks. If course this was due to logging and farming, but it got me thinking.

Can anyone point out any public locations that have large grassy meadows? I'm not thinking of swampy beaver meadows, but high, hillside alpine meadows.

One of the easy areas to get to is all along the ADK Loj road. Much of that is farm, but at various times of the year it's either in flower or looking grassy.

Someone, Park Agency, DEC, NY tourism dept., put out a map of the park at one time. This map showed where scenic vistas were within the Blue Line. IDK if this map is still published, but I'd bet that at least some of these vistas were grassy meadows.
