    The Promise Part 2

    I had planned to off as the sun was rising and make fast tracks to the slab for a run North where I would pick uo state routes and get to the vermont border by 6:30 a.m.​

    But when i saw what the morning brought..........​

    All plans of a fast run were off and I quickly lost all sense of Time and Space as I navigated back roads through the tangerine stained radiance of the early morning mist reminiscent of an impressionist painting​

    The promise part 3


    After dawdling around enjoying the early morning I took the fast route to Killington and made a small detour up the access road​

    [​IMG]


    And it was in Killington where I picked up the main objective of the trip​

    [​IMG]


    Vermont route 100, I've ridden every inch of this numerous times and never tire of it. ​

    And in addition to world class scenery you can always find some amusing suprises

    Wow!

    Every now and again, I feel the urge to pick up a camera. Funny thing is - I always get that feeling after reading one of your ride reports Joe.

    Inspiring - thanks for sharing :1drink

    Would you mind at all if I PM'd you for routes in and around the Lake Placid area? Some buddies and I started an annual thing last year to head to the Adirondacks and this June we're making Lake Placid our "home" for a few days.

    There was some kind of race and a ton of runners participating so it was a good excuse to waltz around the traffic

    This is from Smugglers notch where the road narrows to almost a single lane zig zagging through some twists, turns and boulders. Slow and cautious is the rule of thumb here, highly recomended if any one is in the area

    If you go to Albany, you must go to Bob & Rons Fish Fry.
