Day 48 - Latham, NY to Brattleboro, VT (79 miles)
Another later start, so not a lot of color left in the sky, but here's my start of the day shot.
Today we left New York behind and entered Vermont.
Lots of nice ponds and streams along the way. Since we were climbing all day, I figured I'd use one with a big hill in it.
Not sure why, but this barn was built on top of the silos.
There are a lot of these cool old churches in these New England towns.
View from the top of Hogback Mountain. There was a nice overlook and gift shop up here with ice cream.....it was a must stop place.
Coming in to Brattleboro, there was this cool old covered bridge. It looks like they are restoring it, and adding another bridge right next to it, to take the traffic off.
.....downtown Brattleboro. Seems like a pretty cool town.
Two more riding days left now. Tomorrow is supposed to be another tough climbing day. I hear there might be a little climbing on Monday as well, but it should be a little shorter. I'm sure the adrenaline boost of getting to the beach will help a good bit that day as well.
Thanks for reading.
