Heads or Tails: First or Last: Newport, Vermont

Poulin Grain: In the middle of the city

Newport, Vermont is at the southern end of Lake Memphremagog. Memphremagog is a 32 mile (51.5 km) long fresh water glacial lake straddling the international border between Newport and Magog, Québec. Newport is, therefore, the first (or last) American city on the lake. These are photographs of sites and views in Newport taken from the shore of the lake.


Owl's Head Mountain (elevation: 2,450 ft or 746.76 meters), in Québec, Canada as seen from Newport across Lake Memphremagog, viewed in the last light of day (which, with the dark cloud bank, explains the darkness of the photo). Owl's Head is way back in the darkness and can be seen more easily if you click on the photo and view the large version in a new window.

The Gateway Center, site of many social functions in the area.
