Celebrating our great country's 245th birthday this weekend in Lake Placid, inside the Adirondack Park. The Park is 6 million acres, bigger than Yellowstone (2 million), Yosemite (0.8 million), Grand Canyon (1.2 million), and Great Smokies (1.2 million) National parks combined. This park wraps around some limited privately owned acres and towns including the town of Lake Placid which hosts its annual Horse Show each 4th of July. Photographed this jumper using my 400 mm zoom lens at 1/1000th of a second. Visit Lake Placid if you can.
