Road tripping in Vermont – hiking and the Vermont Country Store

Posted on September 29, 2021


So the Wednesday Vermont adventure involved hiking at Lowell Lake in Vermont.

The hike around the pretty lake was nice, but it was especially interesting to come across this old cemetery.

Not only did we know it was old because of the condition of the gravestones, but because several graves had Revolutionary War Medals on them!

After the hike, we were starving. Luckily there is a good deli close by. Except the deli featured all organic food. Hah, only in Vermont would you have an organic deli. Shhh, don’t tell Mr. Ken that it was organic. πŸ™‚

We then did the quintessential Vermont experience by visiting the Vermont Country Store.

This store is filled with all sorts of items from the past. Do you recognize any of these items?

Driving home from the Vermont Country Store, we hit a thunderstorm. Boy, there is nothing like experiencing a thunderstorm in the mountains. The thunder was loud and the clouds were amazing.

All in all, another fabulous day in Vermont.
