Virtual Hike to Milton, Vermont

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

The virtual hike from the Trapp Family Lodge to Milton went through the Green Mountains in Northern Vermont and down toward Lake Champlain.

I could have snipped many pictures from this hike as it is very scenic. If you are looking for a good virtual hike, this is a good one to click through on your computer.

I finally made it to Milton, Vermont. It is a town of about 10,000 people and until 50 years ago was less than 5,000. There is also a race track in Milton that many NASCAR drivers competed at when they were younger. 

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 still a few stops behind on my posts.

Next up is to cross Lake Champlain on a ferry over into  New York.

Once I am in New York there will be an interesting literary stop before heading south down through the Hudson River Valley.
