|Adirondack Mountains View from Dead Creek Wildlife Refuge, Panton, Vermont 6 March 2016|
It was a beautiful Sunday to go out and about taking photographs of the local landscapes. I wanted a few pictures of ice on Dead Creek for reference, and the Adirondacks before spring begins. I can see the landscape better in the photo above (looking west) than in those taken last fall (that I plan to paint). While I don't have a brain expecting a snow storm, I know this is March, and there might be more snow. Getting down to the Dead Creek hasn't been on my picture taking list because I don't remember if the parking areas are plowed. I'll be surprised if they are. If there is more snow, then I'll try to get out there for winter photos. Alas, as I look at the photo above, I realize I don't know the name of those individual mountains.
A quick Google search for Adirondack Mountains names > maps> I find a map of the area but when fiddle with the zoom to locate where I take the pictures, I look over to the map where the mountains are... and Google has few names. I did find a map naming Dix Mountain and Giant Mountain, but I'm not for certain which peak they are. I need to take better notes of locations.

|Mount Marcy 5343 Feet (1629 M) highest peak on the left distance?|
Mount Marcy is the only peak I feel I can name so far. That might be to the right of Mt Marcy, Dix Mountain. I did find a map naming Dix Mountain and Giant Mountain to the right/north of Mt Marcy.

Its uncomfortable taking pictures near the water, as thin ice is like a fear of heights thing.
