Now that things for China are falling into place, I've decided to spend some time exploring my own state (and area). I started by going to Quechee Gorge (pronounced KWEE-CHEE). I'd been by it *so* many times on Route 4 going to I-89 (all the times to West Leb, Dartmouth, Maine). My first stop was Killington Deli for some coffee and water...like I need coffee, but it's cheap and good (Green Mtn).
I hate driving through Woodstock when there's people there. It's such a pain in the @** and of course I forget to take the back route. But I made it through w/o any trauma and continued through towards Quechee. I peeked in at Scotland by the Yard and they're sheeps were out!
Yes, sheeps. I know, not grammatically correct...nevermind. It's sheeps.
I parked near the Gorge, did some hiking, took some pictures of the obstacle course (downed trees) then walked across the Gorge's bridge.
What a view!!!! *sighs* No wonder so many tourists go there, it is quite magnificent!
Then I did a little touristy souvenir shopping. I got some chocolate Neccos for Mom, red shoelace Twizzler-esque stuff for Dad, and then some chocolates, cheese/pepperoni bites for me. On the way back towards Rutland, I stopped at Scotland by the Yard for some chocolate chip shortbread cookies.
The sheeps weren't out, so no pics. *is sad*
