Summit of Mt. Marcy
You are standing on Mt. Marcy, the state highpoint at 5,344 feet. This summit was named after William Learned Marcy who was once governor of New York. President Roosevelt was climbing near this area when he found out Mckinley had been shot and was dying. When he got out of the woods he learned he had become the next president. Mt. Marcy seems to stand in overlook over all the other high peaks and on a good day you can see almost every one of them. Enjoy your time on the summit as it took some effort to get there.
