Take a Hike

So – more Vermont eye candy ensued once we left our brilliantly-decorated room

I would not classify myself an “outdoorsy” girl; I couldn’t tell you the last time I went hiking, and my idea of “getting outside” consists of picking apples at a “human-proof” farm and walking city sidewalks around Castle Island (it’s not the city because it’s on the water!). 

It’s not that I hate nature, but getting out of Boston into rural mountains and spending the day climbing rocks and trampling through mud is not my top priority.

I was a little wary of what our hike through Twin Farms’ trails would be like; I was convinced he 50+ crowd staying there would lap me on the mountain. 

(sad trees.)

I was determined to get out and find just ONE tree that hadn't lost its leaves already, and after diverting from the trail (Tim’s idea), getting lost for a few hours, and running (uphill) back to the inn to make it in time for BBQ lunch, I definitely got my fair share of foliage.

(get lost, find some cows.)

(told you I was running)

(almost back to Twin Farms for the most delicious ribs I have ever eaten.)

Are you a hiker? And tips for a new potential aficionado?


Thank you so much for your sweet comments - each one truly makes my day!
