Vast sky, cerulean blue spanning space between ancient mountains; warm air, light of sun glistening off water, deep and cool. Gulls and loons, cormorants and osprey glide the air and water alike as we slip through the “Lake in between”.
Lake Champlain, considered the “Most Historic Lake” in all the United States, fed by Lake George and draining north used to be saltwater during the times of the great glaciers. After the glaciers melted the land, no longer burdened by the massive weight rose up and sealed the Lake off from the Atlantic Ocean water. Once home to whales, Lake Champlain now holds the secretive and ancient Sturgeons. Growing up to 12 feet in length and living as old as 100 years they take the mark as the oldest lifespan fish.
Reaching depths of 400 feet and stretching 120 miles long Lake Champlain is truly a wonder to behold! Perfectly situated in between the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks of upper New York is offers breathtaking views, some of the oldest cliff formations and old growth cedar forests along its expansive shores.
This is our destination! Won’t you join Element Mountain for a canoe/kayak trip across these ancient waters? We plan to push off along the eastern shores south of Burlington and cruise easily along taking in the sights, sounds, freshness of air and deep energy of the elements; water, air and fire will feed us while we paddle over mysteries beneath.
Home to the legendary Champ, the “Loch Ness Monster” of Lake Champlain, there is claimed to be a major “vortex” near the Lakes deepest spot. If the weather permits we will venture in that direction and use our focus abilities to see what we find out.
Many times on my own trips I will drop anchor and jump overboard to swim in the cool waters, and then hang out for lunch before moving on. This will certainly be an option for anyone who comes along! We will also be heading to the rocky shoreline in beautiful coves where we can pull our canoes/kayaks out and swim some more. Also in the coves are trails to explore old growth cedar forests, rocky cliff ledges and seek out perfect pieces of driftwood.
The plan is to spend the entire day on the waters of Lake Champlain and surrounding shores, exploring, relaxing, swimming, wildlife viewing, energy tapping and sharing stories of travels and adventures around the world! If this sounds like fun to you then check your calendars to see if you can make it.
If you do not have a canoe or kayak, no worries. There is a place to rent them where we will be putting in at. The cost is very low. Also available for rent are life vests and paddles.
