The Road Most Traveled!

I always thought the Appalachian Trail was out in the wilderness where you could walk for days and be in complete solitude. For most of this hike that has been the case but the hike today crossed several roads, went by a campground, and even some houses. There were lots of families on the trail just taking short walks, groups of Asians asking directions to the trail head as they were parked right beside it, and even some East Indian families obviously excited to be in the woods.

We did a point to point hike so Chuck, the October Inn owner and chef extraordinaire, shuttled us to the trail head after we parked our car at the end.

The terrain was very rough, Sue had to clear a few rocks for us to pass by but we made it and felt today was the most fun so far.

This area of Vermont is a ski area in the winter and at this time of year is heavy with "peepers" coming to see all the beautiful fall colors. If you ever come to Vermont we all would highly recommend coming to the October Inn and staying with Edie and Chuck, they are wonderful and the area has a lot of different things to do.
