Visitor Reviews of Whiteface Mountain (Lake Placid)

Peter from United States writes:

Unlike all the other East Coast mountains.....

Whiteface is in the Adirondack Mountains, which are not part of the Appalachians. The Adirondacks are part of the Canadian Shield which runs across Eastern Canada to far Western Ontario, including Northern Michigan. This is an entirely different geological formation. The Adirondacks are some of the oldest mountains in the world, similar to the Urals, perhaps 3 billion years old.
