The LaChute River
The LaChute River drains the waters of Lake George into Lake Champlain at Fort Ticonderoga. However its two miles of waterfalls and rapids required vessels, men and supplies to make a 1.4 mile overland portage to get below the last set of waterfalls. Then it was a clear river for an additional 2 miles down to Lake Champlain. So, naturally, we had to canoe it all the way to Lake Champlain as a part of the Common Man Tour since it was a French and Indian War waterway between the two lakes. We did so on August 31st.
