Boys return from Ticonderoga
Dennis and Noah returned from the Boy Scout Camporee at Fort Ticonderoga, which is about two hours from our house up in the Adirondack Mountains. (Everything seems to be "about two hours" from here, which I guess is a good thing.) They had a good time, despite the cold nights and the lack of previously advertised "re-enactment" at the fort, which was critical in both the French and Indian War and the American Revolutionary War. You can see Lake Champlain to one side and Lake George to the other. Dennis said the leaves were beautiful, about one week from peak season. Dennis forgot the camera, so here are a few shots taken with his cell phone.
I'll be back later with more thoughts on something other than scouting...
