Ascent Trip Report

Short walk nb on a grass track from USA side ...... 300 yards, 20 minutes RT.

From I87, exit 42, south of the USA/Canada Border Crossing at Lacolle, we drove west on #11 for 4 miles to a right turn on Thompson Road, 1.68 miles left on North Star Road, .4 miles right on Upton Road, north .5 miles to the end of the asphalted road at a house. Parked here an walked/continued north on a grass track 75 yards to the USA/Canada Boundary Line Swath and Boundary Monument 661.
I walked the woods north and chose the high ground for this area to be in Canada, 50 yards due north of Monument 661. My GPS reading at the Boundary Monument 661 was 45.00663, 73.53216.

NB: Today's visit to this Monument 661 completes all the Boundary Monuments that I want to visit (18 of them) on the USA/Canada Border 45th parallel, between Monument 744 (at the St Lawrence River in St Regis, furthest west land point on the NY/QC border) and Monument 519 (furthest east Monument on the VT/QC border).
