Green Mountains – We’re Here!


We decided to take the long and scenic route up to the Green Mountains. Very pretty. I always forget just how many great towns New England has until I pass through them! We arrived last night after dark and successfully put camp together by headlamp. Weeeeeeeeee!
I awoke this morning to this view (that’s the top of the tent!) I love it!

We began our day (after breakfast etc.) with a walk up the creek... across the creek...next to the creek...
and of course...a little bit of in the creek!Dan gave us a bit of interesting info about this tree covered in fungi...but he lost Meg after a few moments (too many cool things to explore at once you know!)


Next it was time for Frisbee lessons in the meadow.

How to throw (and how to catch) 101!
M got pretty good by the end of the session!

After packing up the car for the day and heading up to a neigh-boring town we stopped and had lunch next to this covered bridge. We checked out a great thrift store too! Scored a great REI raincoat and some books for Meg, and a vintage necklace and table linen for me!

The next stop of the day was what we'd all been waiting for...
Only a few more miles and we'd be at

THE BEN & JERRY'S FACTORY! Yeah!!!!

We took the 30 minute tour of the facility to see how it all works...although sadly our visit coincided with the OSHA safety traiing day. That said, our tour guide was good and they provided fun vidoes with more info as we went thru the facility. The tour ends with a sample taste. Yum! From there we walked over to the Flavor Graveyard...
I needed a moment to pay tribute to the best flavor ever made...and sadly discontinued (except for the summer a few years back where they brought it back as a limited edition flavor!
My dear Dastardly Mash...how I miss your yummy chocolate ice cream with the tasty treats held within -- ESPECIALLY the raisins!

Perhaps some day they will bring it back...one can hope.



Fun was had by all!
