Crown Point "Arrival"

With the Crown Point Bridge in the background, this photo was taken at the Crown Point State Historic Site, where the forts used to be before they all got blown up and burned down. Actually, the defenses at Crown Point were never "taken" by the British during the French and Indian War. They were blown up and abandoned by the French in the face of an overwhelming British attack force.
In this photo, the Common Man poses with Adam Tokes, the Lead Interpreter at this historic site. This site is the northern terminus of the eastern segment of the Common Man Tour. We'll revisit segments of this trip later this summer, but for now, our trip from Albany to this Crown Point site, which we started on June 23rd, is now complete on July 15th.
And a "Thank you" to Adam for a great tour of this historic site on the day we arrived.
