Fall Vacation: Day 6 (Vermont)...

Our day in Vermont was sunnier and clearer than the previous two days. The scenery was very pretty, almost tranquil. The colors hadn't quite peaked there -- unlike in New Hampshire (where we were about a wk too late), in Vermont, we were about a week too early! But, again, the landscape was pretty awesome.

We started out by doing the tourist thing at Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream -- was actually a really good tour. Of course, anytime I can have free samples of ice cream automatically makes any tour 'really good'.

Then we did a tour of The New England Maple Museum. Again, free samples -- this time, of Vermont maple syrup. Delicious! The tour guide there was top notch -- he really knew his stuff. And the gift shop was excellent, and not terribly pricey at all.

The rest of the day, we spent travelling southward, thru Vermont, and spending the night in Massachusetts. Had a great visit with one of my brothers, and his adorable wife. All in all, it was a really good day. Here is a video of us blazing thru Massachusetts, on our way to visit family.

Some of the more scenic pics are posted here of the day in Vermont. Click the pics to enlarge.
