Vermont's counterpart to Scotland's Loch Ness Monster, which has been theorized to possibly be a marine dinosaur that didn't get extinct when the space object slammed into the Yucatan and kicked up a lot of dust all those years ago. Between Vermont and New York State is Lake Champlain, which is reputed to have such a monster living there. So naturally because of the lake's name this beast is referred to by regional residents as the "Champ".
When I first visited Vermont I came from Montreal and drove a few hours thru the Quebec countryside. I went to St. Albans which is directly on the shores of Lake Champlain. The lovely Green Mountains were in view. I asked a nearby New Englander if that body of water was Lake Champlain. He said yes. I asked him if he'd ever seen the Champ, he said "Not lately".
