This east-looking view shows the Mohawk River Valley extending generally eastward from Utica (lower right) to the Albany Plain and the Hudson River in the upper right portion of the image. The southeastern Adirondack Mountains cover the majority of the lower left quadrant of the image. The Green Mountains of southern Vermont and northwestern Massachusetts are visible in the upper left quadrant of the image. Two large lakes and the small portion of another are discernible on the image. Near the center of the image is the Great Sacandaga Lake that is 27 miles (43 km) long and covers an area of 42 sq. miles (109 sq. km). The long linear Lake George, which is located to the northeast of Great Sacandaga Lake, is 33 miles (53 km) long. Both lakes are popular resort and recreation areas. The extreme southern portion of Lake Champlain can be seen at the left center of the image. The capital city of New York, Albany which is located on the west bank of the Hudson River, is discernible in the upper left portion of the image.
