South Bay - Lake Champlain
Just slightly Northwest of Whitehall is the South Bay of Lake Champlain. Perhaps more of an impediment to land travel than an important waterway, it was still a waterway used in both summer and winter for transportation during the French and Indian war. Sooooo, naturally, we had to explore it and we did so today September 2, 2007. There are notations in the history books about Roger's Rangers traveling in this area. Although only a few miles long, it is a beautiful shallow bay. We followed it into the long, narrow segment of Lake Champlain and on down to Whitehall where we locked through Lock 12 of the Champlain Canal back to one of out vehicles. It was a beautiful day to explore!
