Little River, VT: 10/14 – 10/17/19

It wasn’t a long drive on Route 2 East from Grand Isle to Little River State Park. Our friends had arrived before us, and our site was directly opposite there’s.

We love when friends join us on our adventure. It always fun share a meal and enjoy a bottle of vino together!

After an evening of catching up on life, we chose to hike Mt. Mansfield, the highest point in Vermont. We hiked 8.4 miles round trip with an elevation gain of 2,920 feet to the peak at 4,393 feet.

Beautiful views along the way.
Should we eat them?
Contemplating the jump. The taller you are, the shorter it is. Good job, Gail!

The next day we hiked around Little River Historic Campground. In the early 1800’s, a settlement of 50 or so families once lived in the area surrounding Little River. The high demands of the land and weather forced younger generations to abandon the farms. In the mid-1800’s, the land was given to the state of Vermont. Today, Little River State Park is one of the most popular parks in central Vermont.

Rain was on the forecast for the next few days. We went into Burlington had a delicious breakfast at a popular eatery/bakery.

It was time to say goodbye to our friends, Gail and Charlie. We are hopeful that more friends will join us on future travels. Next stop is Maine!
