Throwback Adventure – Fort Crown Point – October 2015

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In October 2015 Shadow, Buster and I Adventured to Crown Point Fort in Crown Point, New York. The Fort is part of Crown Point State Historic Park. The Fort was originally built by the French titled Fort St. Frederic, and was in the French and Indian War and Revolutionary War. The State of New York acquired the Fort in 1910, and it is now open for visitors. The Fort is located along Lake Champlain, near the Vermont border.

We had a historical Adventure to Fort Crown Point, on a breezy Fall day. I find one of the perfect types of Adventures to be one that you find, by accident, which is exactly how this visit occurred. I spotted this location by merely seeing it off the side of the road, so of course had to stop and explore this site. The Fort was absolutely beautiful, perfectly shaped ruins, with bright colored trees, and small paths atop the hills. Off to one side there was a view of Lake Champlain, framed by mountains in the distance, We strolled around, and spent some time relaxing and playing in the grass, climbing onto the ruins, and of course romping along the Lake shore. I remember the experience was absolutely spectacular. definitely carving a memorable Adventure in my heart (Rating: 5)
