The Green Mountain State

Just passed into Vermont – the AT runs with the Long Trail for 100 miles on this area:

Very muddy here so the bog bridges come in handy

Lots of huge granite boulders

This one looked like a loaf of bread, sliced thickly

No need for the bad weather route today

Yesterday, I crossed the Hoosic River on this fun bridge

A few more: 

Black cherry trees were bombing me with these little green cherries. Notes the dark bak with “plates” that resemble burnt corn flakes 

New England is quite nice this time of year!

    I think I’ve figured out how to comment. Apologies for any duplicates. Kevin, I do have a couple of pages on local Shays’ Rebellion history if you’d like me to send it your way. Hope you enjoyed Sherman Brook.

      Cosmo, just saw a bear at the Congdon shelter – no bear boxes here. Hope my bear bag hang works! I’d love to see what you have on Shay’s rebellion. Feel free to chime in on any plant or tree things I post!
