Fort Ontario in Oswego

Tuesday, October 10, 2006

One of our goals in travel was to visit Fort Ontario in Oswego, NY. We had tried twice before when we were in the area, but it had been closed. This time, we got to go! It was an exciting adventure, filled with history and exploration. But best of all was soaking in the glorious vista of the beautiful Great Lake.

I've blogged all about our visit at New York Traveler.net. Come see!

Wonderful post, great pictures. One tiny correction -- Oswego is on the Oswego River.

Got here from a link on NYCO's blog.
