…that tiny island out there called, appropriately, Frontenac Island, the only island in Cayuga Lake. The lake is 38 miles long, about 68 square miles in surface with an average depth of 182 feet, deepest part is around 400 feet. The entire lake was born of glaciers in the Ice Age that hit their peak here around 21,000 years ago, some of those sheets of ice where almost 2 and a half miles thick and covered almost every inch of New York State.
