Fathers Day 6 19 2016 in the Green Mountain National Forest

Since it was my day (Fathers Day) I decided we would get out of the house and explore.

& Happy Fathers day to all you dads out there as well

It was obvious that I wanted to revisit Bingo Brook again for its cold stream on such a humid summers day.



I sat on a rock taking pictures & videos of the kids and the stream



The girls got wet and swam around for a few minutes complaining it was cold, but not cold enough to keep them out of it for sure.





The river level is extremely low this year and last. In an area that is normally covered under a couple feet of water I found this USGS bench mark



Noticed by now the rig was all lonely looking LOL and the girls were done getting wet



On the way back to the rig I found some wild rhubarb

I mounted on the GoPro and away we went into town



Sadly its battery died without me knowing so everything I thought I was capturing didn’t.

So instead of coming directly home we decided to go to Rochester to get some snacks and sit in the park for a spell





It was so nice to sit at a picnic and let the feeling back into my leg




From there I decided I wanted to explore Charlie Wilson Rd as I heard it’s a good 4x4 trail, it was more of a gravel road until you got to one spot, you’ll see

So up and over bethel Gap we went



Someone goofed their job up, no don’t adjust your screen LOL
