Lamoille River, Stowe

#9 of 9 in Nature in Stowe
The Lamoille River is a river which runs through northern Vermont and drains into Lake Champlain. It is about 85mi in length, and has a drainage area of around 706sqmi. The river generally flows southwest, and then northwest, from the water divide of the Green Mountains, and is the namesake of Lamoille County, Vermont. The river's valley also gave its name to the now-defunct Lamoille Valley Railroad Company, successor to the St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County Railroad.
Legend has it that early French settlers named the river "La Mouette" meaning "The Seagull". However, a cartographer subsequently forgot to cross the t's, which led people to begin calling it "La Moulle". Over time, this became "Lamoille".
