New York & Vermont Road Trip

The Summer was coming to an end and we needed a break from the city.  We love it here, but sometimes you just have to get away and enjoy the quiet elsewhere.  Our road trip was relaxing and fun.  We drove north into the Adirondacks, took the ferry to Vermont, drove down through Vermont to Albany, and  finally back down to Jersey City.

There were many stops on the way.  Storm King Art Center was amazing.  We rented bikes and rode around the sculptures.

In Saratoga, we made it to the last races of the season and won some money betting on the horses.

We hiked Mount Jo in the afternoon and Cascade Mountain the following morning.

We relaxed on the ferry from New York to Vermont.  For dinner we sat at the chefs counter and watched experts prepare our, oh so delicious, dinner.

We rented bikes and rode the Burlington Bikeway.  There is a bike ferry that takes bikers from one side of the bikeway to the other.  It wasn’t working while we were there, but we and everyone else yearned for it.

We could see the other side, but no ferry for us or our bikes.
