The Travels of Tug 44

Lake Champlain

There's been a Ticonderoga Ferry since 1755. This modern version consists of the barge Fort Ticonderoga 11, propelled by the tug Addie B. The barge/tug steers by riding along steel cables which drop down to the lake bottom after it passes. Stay clear!. See their website at:

Lake Champlain is beautiful, with 110 miles of crystal clear water is surrounded by distant mountains. See full-sized photo

The rocks come right down to the water at Snake Den Cove, across the lake from Vergennes. See full-sized photo
