 It is hard to imagine
(thank goodness for pictures)
the awesome beauty of this area
of the United States in the Fall.
I have never seen so many
Hardwoods, ever.
  Searching for place to park for a bit of time,
I was researching amenities offered. I am
definitely in the Northeast. Firewood, Laundry,
Mushing, Snowmobile, Snowshoe Trails available.
   No offense intended, but SNOW is another 4
letter word to me.
   Going to visit Elogene and Steve Weliever in St.
Johnsbury, VT. Talk about lovely people. Enjoyed
myself a lot. Very gracious host’s. Beautiful
country, I liked Delaware, New Hampshire, and
Vermont a bunch, could return there!
  Intention is..head to upstate New York.
