We are surrounded by such beauty.
What we have heard referred to as the 6th Great Lake,
Lake Champlain is approximately 1269 sq km,
201 km long,
23 km at its widest,
with many areas of shoals and reefs,
its maximum charted depth is approximately 400 feet.
Bordered on the west by the Adriondacks
and to the east the Green Mountains,
its shores provide endless bays and coves for safe anchorages.
On this trip we will only scratch the surface,
but I can easily see that when our planned adventures are over,
we will come back and spend entire summers exploring its hidden treasures.
