Oct 6, 2013 - Vermont 2013 - Day 2

We've recovered from the redeye, found a little grocery and are ready for day one of the Vermont Travel and Tourism recommended fall foliage route. We left Killington and took the route toward Ludlow. Along the way we found the great spots with these pics and even more that we didn't upload the pics for. From Ludlow we headed to Woodstock. We stopped for lunch at Pot Belly. The hamburger was good, but the cheese mac was not - I don't recommend ordering that! One thing to definitely order was the New England Clam Chowder, it was...

Day 171 Tuesday 30th September Killington VT (Gifford Woods State Park) The nites are getting cooler, although it’s still t-shirts and jeans during the day. This morning was a first, after our showers, breakfast plus wash-up we ran out of water. Steve made a dash down to the nearby river and retrieved a bucket of water for the bathroom facilities to function OK – you must be impressed how nicely I worded that last sentence…!!! Not to worry we always have spare drinking water and we will fill up later in the day. The weather, although not...
