Groton State Forest, Vermont

This state park, located in a larger state forest, was a brief stop on our road trip for that day. We originally stopped for a quick look and to let the dog out of the car for a few minutes. While there were many people in other parts of the forest, we were very much alone in this area, until we attracted the attention of a trail guide who works in the park during the open season. He was quite passionate, and knowledgeable about the whole forest, and thanks to him, and a map he gave us, we were able to explore much more of the landscape than we had originally planned.

About Me

My photo
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
