The Champlain Bridge, USA

On our little trek down into New England, we made our way down to Ticonderoga, NY.

Ticonderoga, NY is just on the other side of Lake Champlain from Vermont and one of the ways to get there, is to cross over the Champlain Bridge.

As our own Champlain Bridge is coming to the end of it’s life, the original Champlain Bridge in the USA was deemed unsafe in 2009 and was replaced with a new one in 2011.

On the Vermont side, the bridge begins in Chimney Point.  In New York, it starts in Crown Point.

These photos were taken from the New York side of the bridge.  On this side of the bridge, there is a visitors center, a camp ground and the Crown Point State Historic Site.

From the historic site, you have some amazing views of Lake Champlain and Vermont.

The photo below was taken from the window of the restroom in the visitors center.  It gives you another perspective of the type of views there is to be had.

It was so nice to stop here.  It was very peaceful, quiet, not many people and the views were worth every minute we spent there.

Thanks for looking.
