The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Bloomfield, Vermont
The previous destination on my virtual hike was Errol, New Hampshire.
The virtual hike from Errol to Bloomfield went through a mountain area just north of the Nash Stream Forest Natural area.
The route also went through Dixville Notch State Park. You may recognize the name Dixville Notch for the midnight voting tradition they have there. The town, with only a handful of residents, is often the first to turn in their votes during presidential elections.
In the winter time the roads would look like this. There is sometimes snow as early as October. Now though they are near the end of the fall color.
There were some scenic views along the way. Here is an old barn. I am always fascinated by old barns.
The roads were winding and were definitely not flat. A big contrast to where the actual hiking is done along flat sidewalks in my neighborhood.
I finally made it to Bloomfield after crossing the Connecticut River from New Hampshire into Vermont. Bloomfield is a small town of around 200 residents.
I had only one destination in New Hampshire, but will have several in Vermont including one that brings back a lot of memories.
I have been setting shorter distances between destinations for better motivation for my daily walking and so far it has been working. I have been walking more each day and have made good progress on my Virtual Hike. I am actually a few stops behind on my posts.
Next up is to cross Vermont and then on to a special destination in New York, before heading down through the Hudson River Valley.
