Our friend Keith turning 30 got us on the plane to Burlington to celebrate SnoochFest with many other college chums. Basecamp was at Mad River Glen near Fayston, Vermont (word is this is where the real skiing heads go to avoid the lodge crowd).
It was quite the celebration, though most of the photos are under lock and key. Though this one of most of the crew is fit for public consumption:
Excellent stops on the weekend included:
- Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury- ice cold free cider samples and ridiculous cider donuts
- Cabot Cheese in Waterbury– many toothpicks of free samples were consumed
- Alchemist Pub in Waterbury– part of this Vermont Fresh Network promoting local foods
- American Flatbread in Burlington – good pizza that’s also part of the above Fresh network
Based on our 48 hours in Vermont, we are huge fans. Love the feeling when we visit someplace new inside our borders and are completely blown away–gorgeous scenery, good food, gay marriage, Ben & Jerry’s, etc. Plus some of the best driving roads I’ve ever been on. A fall colors foliage tour in 2010 is certainly on the calendar…
