In August 2015, my parents and I flew over to visit my brother in Colorado. At the time he was living in place that was around 8500 feet in elevation, and since we come from a mere 800 feet above sea level, it took a little while to adjust to the thinner air. Our first night there I felt my heart beating super fast, and I was just trying to sleep!
Have you ever wondered what it was like to live back in the 1600s in New England? Before America even was America? A great place to experience what life may have been like is Plimouth Plantation in the state of Massachusetts.
What is a gorge anyways? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, it is a narrow steep-walled canyon , among other things...we shall, of course, be talking about the canyon definition:)
I have lived in the small town of Chester, Vermont on and off for 20 years now. I have enjoyed walking on the trails within the town limits for a good share of those years. At first there was only one trail my family and I went on, the trail behind the local high school. But about 10 years ago or so the town made a new trail called the Lost Mine Trail, so we started hiking there as well. Then, about 3 years ago, another new trail was made, called Butternut Hill Trail, which we also checked out and now enjoy.
There is something special about conquering a mountain, and the sense of accomplishment that comes with it can never be taken away.
Have you ever walked in the brook? Felt the cool water dance around your feet?
