Hiking Down the Trails

Hiking Down the Trails

Sharon gives us yet another trail adventure this week. It’s hard to imagine these vivid pictures are in an area backed by busy street traffic. Vermont is certainly living up to its “Green Mountain” name this month. So much green – so gorgeous! Here’s what Sharon writes for us….

We had a refreshing ramble through woods on both sides of Swift Street, starting from the East Woods parking area.  Although these areas are bounded by busy roads, the woods had a peaceful, remote feeling to them and we had the trails to ourselves.  We first did trails off of the bike paths and as we were heading over to East Woods, a deer bounded across the field we had just edged and then dashed across the road into the woods on the other side.  Our view was close-up but fleeting as the beautiful deer quickly clattered across the pavement.

We heard a barking dog in the distance who followed a couple minutes later, nearly getting run over in the process.  After all that excitement, we dipped back into cool woods and enjoyed walking along Potash Brook which is a lot prettier than what my photos were able to show. Another great evening on the trails with good company!
