Got back yesterday and what a great time we had! Lots of back roads, dirt roads and even put the FJ on a ferry to cross Lake Champlain. We stayed at the Little River State Park just outside of Waterbury, VT. We visited several brewery's, Cabot cheese, Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream factory and Prohibition Pub Brew Pub. Definitely have to go back as we didn't hit nearly enough of the brewery's or the "Toll Road" (it is closed until June 2nd).

Here are a few pics from the trip.

Great photos. For your next trip, hit the Cider Mill and Lost Nation Brewery. Groton State Park is nice - some great hiking. Little River is wonderful. Green River outside of Morrisville has sites only accessible by kayak or canoe. Also the brewery at Trapp Family Lodge. Plenty more to see and do on the next trip. A hike up Camel's Hump is well worth the views. In Montpelier, if you are in to history, the Vermont Historical Society Museum is a great visit. Lots of good restaurants in Montpelier too - Sarduccis, Pho Capital, Down Home Kitchen, Royal Orchid, Mad Taco, Kismet - whatever floats your boat. Also, the nation's smallest capital city. If you like wine there are a bunch of wineries and most give tours and tastings.

Love the art work on the FJ. Well done sir.

Thanks! I will keep all of these in mind. We do plan to head back because we didn't scratch the surface of what there is to see!

Hank another place to add to your list in Northfield Falls VT. while the road is paved its one of only a hand full of places you can see 2 covered bridges over diffent streams in the US and there are 3 on the same road in less than a half mile. Also next time skip Ben and Jerrys and find a Creamy stand. That's real Vermont iced cream.

Yup, B&J is sort of the prototypical tourist trap. The Dairy Queen in Montpelier is more like the real deal. And the three covered bridges are a must see. And while your up that way, keep on going over the mountain and into the valley on the other side, then up over 17 to Bristol for a real small town Vermont experience.

I grew up in Northfield so know the area well. Who were your folks Irongrave? I'm 70 so I might have been in school with them.
