Vermont Weekend....Nor'easter be damned.

Of course the one weekend Steph could get some time off and go to Vermont a Nor'easter decided to roll around New England.  We threw caution to the wind and went anyways.  I flew into Boston and we drove, through rain, traffic, and accidents to Quechee Gorge, Vermont.  Long trip.  Stayed at the Quality Inn right across the street from the Gorge (cool)....good waffles in the morning.  Spent most of the weekend under threatening skies but never got rained on...lucky!!!!   Visited Quechee Gorge, Ben and Jerry's, Green Mountain Coffee, Montpelier, SugarBush farms, Woodstock, good stuff.
