Day 22 – Green Mountain Highway Part 2

Day 22 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

Gifford Woods State Park

After a lovely night at Gifford Woods State Park, I spent the morning hiking on a relatively flat trail around the campgrounds through a forest of maple, beech, yellow birch, white ash and hemlock.  I had to rely heavily on the trail markers as the ground was covered with fallen leaves.  The path led me across several narrow streams, along a river, and past many moss covered rocks and trees.

Day 21 – Green Mountain Highway

Day 21 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways

My drive today took me south on the Green Mountain Highway to Killington, Vermont.  In order to connect to the scenic route 100 from the campgrounds, I took 17 east over the mountain and through the woods of fabulous fall foliage to Waitsfield instead of grandmother’s house.
