Green Mountains... and beyond

This one too was taken from the car, though we stopped the car to take this one. We were driving through Green Mountains and Master S was sleeping in his car seat behind. Suddenly the views opened up across the valley and you could see layers of mountains in the distance.

Green Mountain National Forest

So each day we generally ended up near atleast one picnic spot. We would take a break from the driving and walking around to relax. But more importantly, to get Master S to eat and run around.  The picture below is of a picnic area in Green Mountain National Forest, while driving from Burlington Vermont to Woodstock. It was scenic - pretty much all of them are in New England, but this one also had a brook flowing by. The interesting thing is even though there was a road nearby, once we were near the brook, the sound of the water totally drowned the noise from the road. Very peaceful. And it was right next to the road.

University of Vermont

It is rarely that I get good shots while just driving past. We were driving through Burlington downtown when we pass by the University of Vermont. The spires and the architechture looked particularly dramatic against the overcast skies.

Lake Champlain

When we arrived in Burlington, it was pouring. But as we checked into our hotel and settled in, the pouring stopped for a while. We headed to Lake Champlain. The sky was still overcast with dark clouds but we were able to sneak in a couple of hours near the lake before it started pouring again. It was breezy and pleasant, not too cold infact and Master S had a lot of fun playing and running around in the gardens along the lake.
