In Bennington Vermont!

Growing up in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts, I’ve always loved Vermont. Reaching the border of MA/VT on the trail was exciting! The Appalachian Trail in Vermont merges together with the Long Trail for 105 miles. The Long Trail is the oldest long distance trail in the U.S., it was created in 1912 and runs 272 miles through the Green Mountains in Vermont, from Canada to Massachusetts. The state has been beautiful so far, a different type of woods filled with ponds, dark coniferous forests, different deciduous trees like Birch, which I love but also a lot of thick mud which I definitely do not love. Vermont might be my favorite state!
