It was a misty morning last weekend, with a Fall crispness in the air, when we set off to the ferry at Charlotte to cross over into New York State.
We drove through sleepy towns seemingly inhabited solely by corn dollies and banks of trees in full fall colour.

Our destination was Fort Ticondaroga at the southern end of Lake Champlain, on the borders of New York and Vermont. In some ways, the history of Vermont is encapsulated in the dramas enacted at this significant landmark.
The fort - ruined by the British and locals when it became no longer strategically important - has been restored by its private owners and now operates as a trust, bringing the history of the period back to life.
