In August, we were in Vermont...another one of our favorite states.
We had reservations at Prouty Beach Campground in Newport, VT. It is a county run facility and we were lucky enough to get sites on a bluff. The sites are HUGE! Probably the biggest we have ever seen in our travels thus far. We were treated to gorgeous views as well as sunsets!

|Love this picture of our fristers Gin and Syl!!|
There is a very nice bike trail that runs through the campground, to the city of Newport on one side and to Canada on the other!

Soon we were on our way to southern Vermont for a stay at Greenwood Lodge and Campsites. It is a small family run facility and is really nice!
|Fall? In August?|
Syl, Dan and I decided on which AT hike (Harmon Hill) we were going to do and set out one morning. It wasn't a long one but the description of the hike was a little un-nerving......"1000 ft ascent in less than 1/4 mile". Yikes! Well, we would take it slow and see how it went!
|Up, up, up|

|Looking down on Bennington, VT|
|Only 557 miles to Katahdin (northern terminus of the AT)!|
|and 1563 from Springer Mountain (southern terminus of the AT)!|

Our summer travels had now come to an end. We left Gin and Syl with hugs and "see you in Cedar Key". We were going back to the farm in PA for a bit before we head to NC....
