Here in New England you can find some great barns. As I took this photo, a rooster was crowing somewhere behind me.
I rode past a few nurseries with acres of evergreen trees and bushes, and a few farms, but mostly woods and backyards. As on most bikepaths, there are usually a few restaurants that welcome two-wheeled passers-by. I'm keeping this one in mind for my next trip.
I only travelled about half the distance of the path, approximately 8 - 9 miles, and returned to my travelling, arriving in Burlington, VT around 3:00pm on a beautiful, sunny day. In appreciation of the weather, I took a 9 mile spin on the Burlington Bike Path (also a former railway line).
The evening was filled with happy grandchildren. Who could ask for anything more?
I've got more photos to post tomorrow - part two.
