We completed another two, #28 and #29, of the lower 48 states!
#28 - Mount Mansfield, VT - 4,393ft - 6.6 mile hike with an elevation gain of 1,793ft. A challenging (mostly straight up and over large rocks) hike to the top (note: if you plan to hike it, do it on a week day - less crowds). Great views and a beautiful day on the mountain!
Burlington, VT - On the way home from the mountain, we decided to take a side trip and stop in to see Burlington. Great town on Lake Champlain. Lots of character (many musicians playing on the streets) and beauty.
|The original Ben & Jerry's store - couldn't resist!|
|at the recommendation of a friend, we had a wonderful meal and beer here|
Lake Placid - a short stop from the Mount Marcy trailhead - another beautiful mountain town
|Ski Jump from the 1980 Olympics - that's CRAZY!|
Next high points - MA, CT and RI!
Til next time...Happy Trails!
