Touring Central Vermont

We toured through central Vermont heading to Stowe, Vermont, where the home of the von Trapp family is. From there we traveled just a few miles to the home of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream factory.

This is a typical scene of the country side in central Vermont.

Here is Jim and Dick walking up the driveway to the von Trapp home/hotel.

A Trip to Vermont, Part #2

Having traveled in Canada all the way to Montreal, we headed south and into Vermont where we stayed at a Bed & Breakfast on an island in Lake Champlain.

Dick and Jim were discussing sports (most likely) when I snapped this picture out front of the B & B.

The evening that we stayed at the B & B, the owner's two children decided to play Yatzee with us.

The four of us decided to take a lunch cruse on Lake Champlain out of Burlington, Vermont. Dori and Jim are waiting for our boat to begin loading.

Here is Burlington taken from the tour boat.

I spotted these people rock climbing by the shore of Lake Champlain.

A Trip to Vermont, Part #1

Dick and I, along with our friends Dori & Jim Goodrum, recently took a trip to Vermont by traveling through Canada. Here is part #1 of the trip.

The first day of the trip we got as far as Flint, Michigan. The next day we crossed over into Ontario, Canada. Here is the view we saw as we entered.

We stopped along the way to see sites and among other things, to shop. While Dori and I shopped, the guys would patiently wait.

In the outskirts of Montreal, Quebec, I saw clothing hanging of clothe lines and took the pictures.

When we re-entered the U.S., we were in the northeastern corner of New York and the northern border of Lake Champlain. Dori and Jim pose for a picture at a park along side the lake.

Here is a picture of one of the lighthouses on Lake Champlain.
