Groton State Forest, Vermont

Groton State Forest, in northern Vermont, is home to several state parks, and is a great place for hiking and walking along wooded trails. Just driving along Route 232 was beautiful with all the yellow fall leaves, brilliant in the late morning sun. I really enjoyed riding along with the car window open so I could take in all that color and the earthy forest air. The combination of so much yellow foliage and the deep blue sky was a striking sight. We both rode, and walked, on this trip, and we passed horseback riders, dog walkers, a few serious hikers, and many avid photographers along the way.

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.
