A social media post from Fort Ticonderoga, describes another activity on the schedule for this summer's teacher institute. I'm excited to take a cruise on Lake Champlain aboard the Carillon (The fort was originally named Fort Carillon by the French who build it.).
The description on the fort's website is full of promise. I know the views will be gorgeous as I consider the 18th-century history (and more) of the area.
Enjoy gorgeous, sweeping vistas of Vermont's Green Mountains and New York's Adirondack Mountains during a 75-minute narrated boat tour aboard the Carillon. Let our friendly and experienced staff be your guide to Lake Champlain's centuries of stirring maritime heritage with panoramic vistas around you and a sonar view of shipwrecks below.
