There are a lot of swimming holes in Vermont.  A really nice one is Pikes Falls in Jamaica, Vt.

When I was a kid, we used to go up to Hapgood Pond in Peru, VT a lot on weekends.  Really fun to take a picnic and swim.

It just makes for a really fun day.

There is a walking trail that goes around the pond and all the wildflowers along the trail are marked telling what they are.

At the Hapgood General store they have a breakfast sandwich with home made biscuits and all local ingredients including locally cured bacon.

And all kinds of kale salads that are made from local ingredients.  I love the whole Hapgood pond area.

Also Bromley Mountain is right near Hapgood and in the summer they have an Alpine Slide that is wicked fun.

You can control your speed somewhat, but it’s fun to slide down the mountain in summer.

They also have a zip ride for the very brave.

I just love the whole Hapgood Pond area.

The Burlington area with views of Camels Hump mountain is also a beautiful area.  There is a bike trail in Stowe that is really fun to go on.  We have roller bladed on the trails as well as ride bikes and taken walks along the trail.

I was born in Vermont, my ancestors from way back were Vermonters.  And now I am stuck in Vermont.  But you gotta love it.  It’s just beautiful all 4 seasons.
