Artist's Description

Two states, two icons! The Bluff Point Light on Valcour Island in New York with a snow capped Mount Mansfield in Vermont looming over… Mount Mansfield is the highest point in Vermont [4,395 ft (1,340 m)].
From Wikipedia: “Valcour Island, about two miles (3 km) long and a mile (2 km) broad, lies by the western shore of Lake Champlain, forming a narrow strait against the New York mainland… The Bluff Point Light stands on the western shore. It guided boats through the narrow strait from 1871 until 1930 when it was replaced by a steel tower…
On October 11, 1776, a naval engagement known as the Battle of Valcour Island was fought in that strait between British and United States naval forces under Benedict Arnold.
The island is now within the Adirondack Park.”
