(No) Bridge to Vermont

Our route to Vermont takes us across a bridge that connects New York and Vermont. Sometime last year, the bridge was checked for safety and failed....so miserably in fact that they blew it up. What!?! So while construction is ongoing, a free ferry takes you from New York to Vermont and back.

It only takes 5 minutes or so to cross to Vermont, but since you are supposed to turn the car off (and it was really hot), we took a quick trip up to the observation area.


You can see the bridge progress behind us!

And in the background here you can see the dock for the ferries (to the right of my head)

The new bridge...

Up close!

We had about an hour left in our trip at this point....poor Will protested going back in the car seat. But it was a nice short break with quite a view!

I think that was the bridge that Martin I used to camp next to on the NY side. Was there a fort behind the ferry dock?
