Lovely photos! The thing that amazes me about the plains is the horizon! Vermont is a very hilly state, so we generally see from one side of a valley to the other. If you climb a hill, you get a great view...of the next hill.
I love Vermont, but being able to see distant horizons is a real treat!
I got a sidecar to travel with my dog. He never complains, is delighted to be with me, approves of my dietary choices, is a social butterfly who helps me meet folks, appreciates a good beer, snuggles better than my wife, and hangs on my every word as if it's the most profound thing he's ever heard.
