I love Vermont! The climbs have been long and steep but the views have been phenomenal! It’s been muddy with lots of mosquitoes but there have been tons of beautiful ponds, brooks and swimming spots! The daytime temperature is great for hiking, the night is cool and great for sleeping! Overall anything I could find to be annoying about the state is overwhelmed by the beauty and wilderness experience. It’s the perfect state for the outdoors!
Best Irish pub I’ve been to, McGrath’s Irish Pub at The Inn at Long Trail in Killington, VT. The food was great and so was the beer! Pictured here is a Vermont Half and Half, Vermont’s Long Trail Ale with Guinness, plus a shamrock drawn in the foam for the Irish pub stamp of authenticity.
The Irish themed Inn at Long Trail is very hiker friendly. The quote reads- ” A place where the dressed up folk, travel worn motorists and roughly dressed hiker all might mingle with no apologies necessary”
