Day 29

Location: Burlington, VT

Miles Driven: 209

Total Miles: 5,313

Took care of laundry and some other business at Colleen’s in the morning, then hit the road shortly before 1PM and made my way Northwest.  The plan was to get to Burlington, VT by the end of the day.  On paper, it was a five hour drive, but I spent a lot of time on state highways that, though scenic, moved fairly slow.  I’m glad I had the chance to take this route as New Hampshire and Vermont are both incredibly scenic states.  I got to drive through the White Mountains of New Hampshire and learned why Vermont is called the “Green Mountain State.”  I was debating taking time out to do some hiking, but I wanted to get to Burlington before it was too late, so I passed.  Worked out, as for parts of the way it was raining.

So thanks to my friend John for bringing up the ferry options available at Lake Champlain, which is on the Northern border of NY and VT.  I had no idea Lake Champlain was so huge until I took a detailed look at the map.  One could drive around north or south, but it would be quite a detour, and I’ve heard the ferry trip is a nice ride (and not too expensive) so I’ll do that tomorrow morning and be back in my home state of NY; however, it will be unfamiliar territory for me, as I don’t think I’ve ever been that far north in the state.  All the more reason to explore it.
