A Low Way to Go

      2023 is in the books and that means the Champlain Canal is another year older. 201 years old to be exact. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the opening of the canal the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership created a six panel mobile display focusing on different aspects of the waterway. There may be one somewhere in our area but I haven't found it yet. In the meantime you can see the display online here.

    A list of the organizations devoted to Lake Champlain is longer than the lake itself. In the unlikely event that a wave of ambition washes over me I'll do a post sorting thru them and their various missions. Till then I hope you enjoy the panels and the canal.
