MONDAY/ DAY 3


On monday we woke up and drove to Quechee Gorge, It is Vermont's version of the Grand Canyon (so I read on a sign nearby).

You walk on this bridge to look down on it.



such a pretty view






amazing





The gang is loving the scenery!




Then we went to the tourist village near the Gorge. So many country stores in one spot.
Amber found a cute necklace that she purchased and Darin found a new Hackey Sac to play with.





The old village stores











Darin and Amber made a friend :)








Doesn't she make a cute cow?







After shopping we went over this covered bridge just to say we did.
Just a further picture of it.
All we did after this was visit with his mother. Which was always nice to do.
We did alot of swimming in the pool at the hotel...I will post pics of the hotel and pool after. It will give me more to talk about.

The sights must have been exciting. Covered bridges, the village and where you stayed are all things you will remember. I hope my Mom-in-law enjoyes seeing everyone. At times like this it is important to know someone cares.

We don't have covered bridged like that over here, simply because people steal all the wood for their camp fires!!!

Great pictues, thanks so much for sharing especially for us overseas it's really interesting.

Mal do we even really have covered wooden bridges here? Do you remember that steel one that used to go over the Hawkesbury River at.....well somewhere north of Sydney anyway.

Keep up the photos Caro if you have any more.

Looks like so much fun - I wonder how beautiful it would look in the fall when all the leaves were in color!
