A Visit to Vermont...State #35
Today I decided to go to another state I have never been to before...Vermont
I drove back roads from Brattleboro to Bennington and was lucky enough to drive through Wilmington, Vermont just as their Memorial Day parade was beginning.
I decided to stop and was very moved by this small town's simple yet powerful Memorial Day parade. I truly was lucky to be there at just the right time...
In Bennington, I visited the very historical "Old First Church", where Robert Frost is buried...
I then headed to the Bennington Battle Monument to learn more about the Battle of Bennington.
Vermont is a very beautiful state where everything seems to revolve around maple syrup. Everything I bought today had maple in it...a maple soda, maple drops, maple suckers and even wine with some maple in it!
