LAKE SUPERIOR, MN: ONE LAKE, MANY BEACHES

IN GOOD HANDS: Fredericksburg, VA

ART, ARCHITECTURE & FLYING MONKEYS (Burlington, VT)

We crossed the New York state line with our ‘Little Guy’ trailer in tow. We were crossing the Burlington-Port Kent Bridge into Vermont right over the top of Lake Champlain.
