The views, as you would expect, were tremendous. We followed Mac to the top. We climbed to the actual summit. Enjoyed watching the cog railways bring people from below. They were quite lovely in design. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Apparently the summit has only a few clear days per year and we managed to have clear skies, warm temperatures and no wind.
We then spent the rest of the day riding west on Highway 2. We had several short rest stops along the way until we reached the Lake Champlain Ferry at Charlotte, Vermont. We had a short wait which was quite pleasant after all that riding. The ferry crossing to Essex, New York State, was serene and relaxing after many hot miles on the road.
