Last saturday I took an early morning drive to NY to pick up a mtn bike that I won on ebay. The bike, of course, was a steal. But the even greater reward was the adventure. I met the owner on the NY side of the Crown Point Bridge. I followed the valleys on the way there (to Burlington and then down along Lake Champlain through farm country) and then up and over the Green Mountains on the way back (via Appalachian Gap). It was 170 miles of pure bliss - looking at the scenary, stopping to take pictures, picking up a fresh blueberry muffin, and jamming to tunes. The soundtrack was provided by The Wrens - Meadowlands, Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene, & Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones. Here are some of the sights.
Total, complete, ABSOLUTE!
Vergennes, VT Is the bus going to pick me up today? You betcha! Looking at Vermont who knew there was a Rodin on the monument in Crown Point?Eastern view from App Gap (notice the snow covered road - driving was a nightmare!)
