Lake Alma, New York - Enter the Adirondacks Mountains on 166N hear the town of Rockwood, NY. We turned onto highway 10 and painted at the roadside by a small lake called Lake Alma. I was surrounded by tall trees of every fall color and as the afternoon sun dropped in the sky, the crimson colors of the leaves became a purple fuchsia. It was probably the most colorful scene I have ever painted. There was parking on the side of the road opposite the lake. It's necessary to climb through brush for about 20 feet to get away from the side of the road. A No Trespassing sign is posted on a tree, so I set up at the edge of the property and there were no problems. Look for a big white sign that says Lake Alma off to the right near the edge of the lake.
