With a possible noreaster FINALLY hitting the north east rather than the central East, I thought it would be fitting to explore locally. I take you to the lightly traveled gorgeous islands of Lake Champlain and Grand Isle. Even though Lake Champlain hasn't frozen over in over a decade, heading up to the islands a frozen wonderland takes over. Only 30 minutes or so north of Burlington, it's as easy travel adventure.
On the shores of Grand Isle.
Even with a foot of melted shore line, with a hop, skip and a jump, the lake still has two - three feet of frozen water below. A couple of ice-fishing shacks huddle together on the horizon. It is a bright, sunny endless playground.
Shadow playing on the ice.If you haven't been out to the islands in the winter or early spring, it's time! One minute it feels completely deserted. The next minute it feels as though you have been dropped into Narnia. It's a magical place!
