Indeed, we spent a gorgeous afternoon at Fort Ti and up on Mt. Defiance. Thought I could almost hear the skirl of the Black Watch pipes out on the Heights of Carillon. I'll be posting on things French and Indian in the coming days.

Dear Sir ,
It is indeed an incredible area for beauty and history . Back in the Eighties I camped at Crown Point ; it was October and I was the only person there and before I retired I played a bagpipe tape on my portable tape recorder. The pipes echoed across the dark lake and it seemed like 1757 ! To be non-partisan I did drink some cognac.
Cordially ,

I have spent time every summer up there for 12 years, most recently at Pilot Knob, but also in Cleverdale, Bolton Landing, Heulett's Landing and Silver Bay. It's one of my favorite places on the planet.

As for the history, as you correctly note, the area is rich with it. Last month I took my kids to Fort Ticonderoga, which is also where the LaChute River drains Lake George into Lake Champlain. If you and Viv did not get up to the fort, it's definitely worth a look-see
