For our Sunday road trip, we traveled to Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park. The forecast called for rain and high winds later in the day so we arrived at the park around 11:30 hoping to beat the weather and take a brisk walk. It was a cold morning and we bundled up. But, as we climbed the carriage road that led to The Pogue, we warmed up fast! 🙂
I’ve been meaning to take Jim to the park since my excursion there during the summer. The carriage roads and surrounding trails are well-maintained and not overly crowded. He loved the moderate hike and we agreed that there are enough other trails through the woods to warrant a few more trips to explore. Definitely going to consider snow-shoeing here this winter!
Vermont is very fortunate to have such unspoiled and accessible natural areas. It’s a great way to enjoy part of the weekend to take your mind off things.
With Covid restrictions ramping up and our voluntary self-isolation most of the time – our Sunday excursions are becoming quite fun and – yes- a good way to focus our energy elsewhere! Was looking at your blog – and am now following – curious about your Costa Rica posts. We are considering a trip there. Looking forward to reading what you have posted 🙂

I have fond memories of my travels through Vermont, such beautiful nature. Thank you for following my blog, I appreciate it very much. For the last ten years I’ve mainly focused on Latin America and Canada, I’m trying to show this steadily, before resuming travels in Europe.
We enjoyed our visit there this summer…you are lucky to live so close. Nice post!
It is a really nice local treasure! Can’t believe it took me almost 18 years to discover. Sometimes we just don’t “see” what is in our own backyards!
