PICTURESQUE AU SABLE CHASM, NEAR LAKE CHAMPLAIN, IS ABOUT TO BE SURVEYED FOR A STATE PARK

I came across this newspaper article from the New-York tribune. (New York [N.Y.]) 1866-1924, August 10, 1902. The title of this pictorial is "PICTURESQUE AU SABLE CHASM, NEAR LAKE CHAMPLAIN, IS ABOUT TO BE SURVEYED FOR A STATE PARK (Photographs by Katherine E. McClellan.)".

The five captions to the photographs are:

  • THE ELEPHANT'S HEAD.
  • CROSSING TO DEVILS OVEN.
  • THE BOAT IN THE FLUME.
  • CATHEDRAL ROCKS.
  • TABLE ROCK.

Perhaps it's a little wanderlust but this sounds like a great surveying adventure to me. Hard work? Yes. Unforgiving, yet beautiful, terrain? Yes. Days full of challenges? Yes. But in the end, I bet it was done and done well. Or, is this a more a more generic usage of the term "surveyed"?

In either case, it looks like magnificent lands.

Anyone familiar with this park and/or survey? If so, leave us a comment below.
