Eric and I took a three-day vacation to hike trails, camp, and explore more of Central Vermont. The hike up Bucklin Trail to the top of Killington was tough, but worth it for the 360-degree views!

A few shots of my best girl as we head into a busy week. Happy Monday!

We're celebrating a little milestone over here. After 15 years as a public school teacher, Eric spent his last day in the classroom with a wonderful group of fifth graders. * He's trading in his marking pen for a carpenter's square and will be jumping into renovating homes full-time in the coming months. * We marked the occasion with a little staycation at @velvetantlerscottage in Shaftsbury, which is one of the most fantastically unique vacation rentals we've ever stayed in, and we've stayed in a lot of vacation rentals! I'll share more as I get the photos edited. * In the meantime, here's Eric enjoying a celebratory glass of wine in the hot tub while simultaneously trying to keep Malinda from jumping in.

Have you ever been to @custerstateparksd in @southdakota? We stopped for several days on a cross-country road trip in 2019 and again in 2021. The rock formations are so cool, as was swimming in Sylvan Lake on a sweltering summer day. I hope we get back there soon! * If you make it there before us, tell those friendly burros we said hello! * * * * #southdakota #blackhills #blackhillssouthdakota #custerstatepark #sylvanlake #backroadramblers #earthscapes #igers_southdakota #roadtripusa #naturescapes #gowest

I couldn’t ask for better hiking partners than these three!

A lovely Adirondack sunset from a past canoe camping trip. Pure magic!

The always lovely Sol Duc Falls in Olympic National Park. We’ll be heading back this way in the fall. ✨

Our trusty canoe has taken us on all kinds of adventures! Here she is in the Lake Champlain Islands. It’s been 10 years since we got her (used), but I think she needs a name!

Malinda and I enjoyed the hike to Sterling Pond today. We only saw 5 people on a trail that is normally much busier. Great trail, although still a bit muddy.

A little photo dump from a beautiful hike this morning. We left the house at 6 am to beat the heat. . Some people hike for the views - we tend to hike for the walk and all the fun things we find along the way. Today it was yellow lady slippers, morels, and five baby ravens in a nest. The views were nice too!

Today’s #waterfallwednesday is from Buttermilk State Park in Ithaca. It’s just one of the incredible @nystateparks in this region, and one of hundreds of waterfalls. ✨

We hit the trails today! Starting easy at Taconic Mountains Ramble State Park in Hubbardton, Vermont. . I love the day-glow green of May in Vermont! Wild columbine and blueberries were blooming. It’s an awesome spot!

Last summer, we did quite a bit of paddling on the Snake River in Idaho. Our favorite part was the upstream paddle from Centennial Waterfront Park in Twin Falls to Pillar Falls with @awoladventuresports1. We got to be river rats for the day and we loved every minute of it! Here's to more summer adventures out on the water!

Desert View Campground is perched on the canyon rim at the eastern edge of the Grand Canyon National Park. * With just 50 campsites, this small campground is worlds away from the crowds of Grand Canyon Village. * Starting in 2021, reservations became a requirement for camping at Desert View, but it's still worth all the extra planning!

Raining and snowing here in Vermont, so here's a summer pic of fancy red bicycles you can rent on the Burlington waterfront from @localmotionvermont. * Keep dreaming of sunshine and it's bound to appear. 🌼 * * * #vermont_explored #getoutside #vermontphotography #vtphoto #vermontlandscapes #vermontbackroads #newenglandwithlove #newenglandliving  #thenortheastcollective   #naturalnewengland  #experiencenewengland  #guidetonewengland  #raw_newengland  #northeast  #vermont #vermonting  #vermontliving   #vt  #vermont_igers  #welovevermont  #vttravel  #visitvt  #thisisvt  #vermontonly  #mynewengland
