Day 5-07

DAY 4: ENFIELD, CT TO WHITE RIVER JUNCTION, VT

Beginning our fourth day, we started bright and early, with a brief stop in Enfield then made our way through the North Eastern states. We arrived in Vermont, affectionately named “The Green Mountain State”, and were able to drive through a historic bridge constructed in the 1920s called the Vermont Country Store Kissing Bridge. The covered bridges back then were called “kissing bridges”, and the name had stuck through all of this time. As we kept on, we saw many sights on the stretches of open road. We stopped at a nice farm and were kindly greeted by chickens and turkeys. The open pastures were beautiful and a farmer was kind enough to pose for a photo with his green tractor. Getting a taste of the countryside, we were able to sit on the porch and enjoy the wooden rocking chairs. Along the roadside, there were some vintage cars (or the remains of) including some Volkswagen Beetles and vans circa the 1970s on display for us to appreciate. Some of these cars had skeletons behind the wheel as if they were driving these expired vehicles. We came across some houses and buildings that really gave a nice view of some historic architecture. We made a pitstop in Dorset, Vermont which has one of the oldest golf courses in American history. Dorset is also famous for being the location of Cephas Kent’s Inn. A cozy cafe hosted a cool vintage VW car in the parking lot. We visited the Rowell Inn which is a transitional Federal style building built in 1826. The Inn was originally a stagecoach stop and was variously used as a community meeting place, post office, and a general store. This section of our journey ended in White River Junction.
