The next destination on my Virtual Hike was Barton, Vermont.

The roads were winding and were fairly flat, but there were a few large hills that the roads went over.

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 continue across Vermont to New York, before heading down through the Hudson River Valley. I was going to head straight across the state, but decided to make a short detour after the next stop to virtually visit a site that brings back some good memories.

Then once I am in New York there will be an interesting literary stop before heading south.
