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*
