A window into my world

This was the first time to the New Land Trust for both of us. All of the trails we went on were well marked and easy to navigate. Benches can be found in many spots for the weary walker. Wear pants and sturdy shoes. Bugs weren't a problem in most places, but maybe have repellent on hand just in case you are tastier than I am. Lastly, know where you are going before you leave home--print out your maps--because you won't have cell service for GPS. It is a great place to go for an easy (and quiet) afternoon hike and now I understand why people hold it dear. For more information visit the New Land Trust website.
Fort Montgomery in Rouses Point is on on the US-Canadian border. Sitting on Lake Champlain, the fort was built in 1844. It is currently privately owned, but can be seen from a parking area on the New York-Vermont bridge.
As I was pulling back out of the parking area to journey home, a military caravan was crossing the bridge into Vermont. How apropos!
Twin-spotted Sphinx. I nearly stepped on it when I walked out my door. It looked like a leaf, then I remembered it wasn't the season for blowing, dead leaves.
