Lake Champlain, the Adirondacks and Green Mountains from space. Image Courtesy NASA Johnson Space Center.
This photo was taken from the International Space Station on March 17, 2002. Dramatically showing Lake Champlain nestled between the snow-covered Adirondacks of New York to the west and the Green Mountains of Vermont to the east, this image illustrates why this lake and Lake George were important transportation corridors during the early days of the Republic. The photo shows the waterway from just north of Isle aux Noix, Quebec on the Richelieu River to the Ticonderoga peninsula. Parts of the lake, particularly Missisquoi Bay, are still ice-covered.
