Green Mountain Ride

Saturday we went for ride through VT. The plan was to head out toward Bennington VT, then continue on to Wilmington along VT RT9, also know as the Molly Stark Trail. We turned north up RT 100 along the various ski areas passing Mount Snow, Haystack, then turning north on RT30 toward Stratton, and Bromely. We stopped in Jamaica VT for a quick sip of water.

We set out again for Manchester. I wanted to stop by Orvis to see a pair of boots, however I found out they don't carry the boots in the store. Online only.

Lots of fish in there

After leaving Orvis the temps were approaching 95 degrees. We decided to head for home.
It was a great day riding and we rode about 180 miles.
