The ultimate aerial photo— Lake George viewed from space

Map Copyright © 2009 America's Historic Lakes
This dramatic photograph of Lake George was taken from the International Space Station on September 24, 2005. The photo shows almost the entire 32 mile length of the lake from Ticonderoga at the north to Lake George Village at the south. Visible are the heavily forested mountains on either side and the southern reaches of Lake Champlain, South Bay, Wood Creek and the Champlain Barge Canal. As with our Lake Champlain from Space photo, this image dramatically illustrates why the lake figured so prominently as a vital transportation corridor during the colonial period and early days of the Republic.
