A summer day cool-off through Ausable Chasm

Listen to this story
This week we're celebrating summer by getting outdoors in the North Country. Yesterday Brian Mann reported on the fight over paddling rights and private property in the Adirondacks.

This morning, we go back to Ausable Chasm, a remarkable sandstone canyon in the town of Keeseville. The Ausable River squeezes through this narrow, high-walled valley of rock just before it flows into Lake Champlain. The privately-owned site has been a popular tourist attraction for more than a century. Brian Mann visited recently and sent this audio postcard.
