Have you ever been to Vermont in the fall? If you haven’t, oh, you simply have to if you get the opportunity.
I promised you the best pictures I took in a separate post, and here they are.
We took the scenic Taconic Parkway all the way to Albany. There was hardly anyone on the road, and the two hours went by fast because I so enjoyed our sweet loaner car, a 2015 Buick Regal GS, we got to try on this trip. I’m used to a bumpy ride in my old SUV, and this was such a smooth ride.
I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was along the way, and L enjoyed watching a movie on his little CD player.
After Albany, we took Route 7 and started to drive through the tall Vermont mountains.
The next day, we woke up to this view:
Killington is a ski resort, population 811. I wonder how many hundreds of people come to ski there in the winter, overrunning the town.
We ate breakfast and L swam in the pool, and then we drove to Quechee Gorge Village.
This place is amazing. It offers the biggest antique center in Vermont, a toy and train museum, a general store with a Cabot cheese store, a cute diner, and more.
It’s the town before Quechee, and it looked so quaint when we drove through it, I wanted to check it out.
Only, we never made it past the beginning of town.
I saw a sign for a thrift store and the rest is history.
I spent over two hour looking through all the vintage treasures. I let L go and play arcade games downstairs a few times so he was happy, then he played in the rows of clothes, and I had just the best time and ended up with two boxes full of purchases, mostly china and linens.
It was a bummer, but we didn’t have time to check out Woodstock after that because we had 4+ hours of driving ahead of us to get back home.
