Hello! Today I begin the first of many posts of our last day of our New Hampshire/Vermont Vacation. After two days of hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire (you can see those older posts starting HERE if you missed them), and one family day of touring local towns (you can see the family posts HERE and HERE ) and watching our daughter perform in an opera followed by a celebratory brick- oven fire pizza dinner, we spent our fourth and final day only a few miles from our hotel touring a gorge, a family farm, and a historic village. Today's post is all about our visit to the gorge.
Quechee Gorge is described as 'Vermont's Little Grand Canyon'. It is one mile long and can actually be viewed from the VT 4 Highway Bridge, where there is a 165 drop to the river below. The first picture shows the view from the bridge. It was really nice for us because this gorgeous view was only a few miles from out hotel. We just popped in the car, drove about three miles, and there it was! It's so nice for the elderly or handicapped too because they can get out and enjoy the beauty of nature from their car.
Here I am below just about to enter the trail, because I knew it would be a 'chick day', I dressed up a little bit more than I did on our mountain climbing days and I wore my new Stitch Fix blouse with a pair of dark, skinny jeans from Express. For my feet however, I stayed practical and wore hiking sandals. LOL!
