Each year, when the snow finally melts from the mountaintops, a magical transformation
occurs in the Adirondacks with the arrival of summer! Suddenly, Alpine ski trails
give way to rugged mountain bike paths. Frozen lakes and rivers dissolve into
miles of exciting canoe and kayak waterways. And backcountry ski trails turn into
beautiful day hikes! With over 1500 lakes and ponds, 46 major peaks, and hundreds
of miles of hiking and bike trails, the Adirondack Park is, quite literally, a
6 million acre playground and sports paradise!

photographer Carl Heilman II has lived in the Adirondacks in upstate New York
since he moved to the region in 1973 to live in his parents' summer home. Carl
Heilman II has been photographing the Adirondack wilderness landscape since 1975,
working to capture on film both the grandeur of these special places, and the
emotional and spiritual connection he has felt as well.
Calendars - The Perfect Holiday Gift
Carl Heilman's passion for spending as much time as possible in some of the wildest
regions of the Adirondack Park, soon became a life-long quest to create images
that record the essence of a true wilderness experience. Today Carl is a full
time professional nature photographer.His photographs and panoramas are also available
as posters, murals, and special edition prints. His selection of Adirondack posters
includes a pair of panoramic posters that show the full 360° view from the summit
of Mt. Marcy, and a panoramic image of the spectacular fall foliage and the High
Peaks from Mt. Van Hoevenberg. Each winter, as a NYS licensed guide, he leads
backcountry snowshoeing workshops at the Mountainfest in Keene Valley, and has
lead them for the Adirondack Mountain Club at the Adirondak Loj near Lake Placid,

Have The Talent, We Have The Resources!
you an author looking to publish your masterpiece? BookPublishers.com could connect
talented writers like you with willing book publishers. For many talented authors,
the most difficult obstacle isn’t writer’s block—it’s finding
a receptive publisher to publish their books. Because publishers have to sift
through so many works, they may dismiss some unfairly, or be so short-staffed
that they don’t have the time to give each manuscript its fair consideration.
For those who decide
that finding a publisher isn’t the right choice for them, self-publishing
can be a great alternative. With self-publishing a writer can maintain editorial
control, as well as keep all proceeds from the book sales. Whatever your preference,
BookPublishers.com wants to help you on your journey to become a published author!
