Vermont Country

June 27th, 2008

We drove through the back roads of Vermont, spotting numerous farms and covered bridges among the rolling hills. In the Green Mountains National Forest we walked the Robert Frost Trail, a 1.2 mile loop with Robert Frost poems posted along the way.

It began raining on us as we were finishing up the trail. It rained as we drove, looking for some lunch. We passed through town after town with no food in sight. Finally, we spotted a roadside grill. We dodged the rain to only discover that they didn’t have any power. We drove into Brandon and found a pizza place. Shortly after ordering, they lost power as well. By now, we were past being hungry. Eventually, we found food further down the road, but by then it was dinner!

Our Vermont lodging consisted of the nice Churchill House Inn Bed and Breakfast outside Brandon, VT. We were served delicious omelets, croissants and fruit for breakfast.


A trail into the Green Mountains begins right near the house. We walked the path that followed the stream for a short while but turned back due to the dreaded mosquitoes. It was beautiful and we would have gone longer if we had been more prepared for the mosquitoes.
