Upstate New York- Fort Ticonderoga

Or, go straight to Maine

Day 1 and 2

I was back in the U.S. in July and took a trip on the Harley to Maine by way of the Adirondacks. Brad and Ann Thacher came out from Detroit with their bike and off we went. Here are some of the photo's I took along the way...

Not a good sign... We're only a little ways into New York and
already we're looking at the map. I'm scratching my head. I forget the
name of the town. Brad shot a photo of the Post Office here. Brad loves
to shoot photos of signs...

These are wood carvings along side the road in Wells, NY. Brad shot
this Sunday morning, just about 100 feet from the Motel. I didn't even
notice them the night before.

Brad takes photo's of lots of signs... this way he doesn't have to spend
time reading them while on vacation. I only took one sign photo... at
the entrance to Fort Ticonderoga between Lake Champlain and Lake
George. A pretty impressive cast of characters have been through the
entrance to the Fort. At the top is George Washington, Ben Franklin,
Benadict Arnold... then of course Brad Thacher... his name will be added
next year I belive...
