Took a 6 hour boat tour of Lake George, 32 miles from the Village of Lake George to Ticonderoga, where the lake empties into Lake Champlain, which flows into the St. Lawrence Seaway to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Lake was named by the British during the French and Indian War to honor their King, George #2. The lake played no part in the American Revolution, but was prominent during the French and Indian War as it is only 160 miles from Canada.
We boarded the ship Mohican, part of the Lake George Steamboat Company, which has been carrying passengers on the lake since 1817. There are over 170 islands in the lake, most of them State owned.
Camping is permitted on the State owned islands.
About 30 of the islands are privately owned, on which some have houses.
Like all waterways that traverse mountains, there is the inevitable “man in the mountain”
To me, it is not the face of a man, but a double scoop ice-cream cone.
