New England Vacation #1

I apologize to all of you die-hard CDP fans, but I have to do this. I don't have access to any Walla Walla Valley photos until next week, and I can't stand not posting for an entire week. So I'm going to be posting photos from my trip to New England with my husband. This is our 2008 vacation and we're touring the Northeastern United States, otherwise known as New England. So if that bothers you, I'm sorry...but I hope you enjoy the photos anyway!

This photo is of a grey and drizzly day in Burlington, Vermont, taken at Lake Champlain. It was a lovely evening, in spite of the occasional spit from the sky. We enjoyed the peaceful walk along this amazingly large lake. Though it doesn't hold a candle to Michigan's Great Lakes (which look like seas even from the air!), it is still a very large lake.

Is the foliage changing yet Becky? I'm in NYC and it's more like summer than fall at the moment.

I've driven through Burlington, once and remember zip. But I liked touring New England.

Hi Becky,

I live in Massachusetts and Lake Champlain is one of my favorite destinations in New England. It would be the largest lake in New England except it shares its border with NY so that distinction is held by Moosehead Lake in Maine.

Lake Champlain has a fabulous set of Islands that are linked by road to each other and mainland.

There was a story a number of years ago that the people's of Vermont petitioned for Lake Champlain to be recognized as the sixth Great lake.

Nice story.
