If you go up to the Winooski area, check out the ferries. They’re not free like the ones down in the sixth boro, but

the view is . . . worth a million somethings, views of the banks as well as the lake bed.

The northern ferry runs 365/24. I crossed along with six other cars around 3 am, and if someone had arrived seconds after the chain shut, they’d have less than half an hour to wait the next. That’s 3 am on a Saturday morning.

Evans-Wadhams-Wolcott, a mouthful of founders’ names for a vessel, measures 196′ x 43′. Notice the log truck. EWW, built in Louisiana, has twin Cats, but the crew could tell me neither the horsepower nor prop diameter. See more historical shots here.

In the surrounding, if not on the lake, you see the unexpected wildlife.

The “sixth great lake” beckons.
