Early Autumn in Vermont - Appalachian Gap

As always, clicky the piccy to biggy.


Heading up the gap on Vermont Route 17. Switchbacks ahead.


From the summit of Appalachian Gap looking west. Elevation 2375 feet, or 724 metres. In Vermont, the term "gap" or "notch" is used instead of "pass".




Radio tower also at the saddle.


The challenging gap is popular route for bicyclists. I snapped this brave fellow right before he crested, then he rode back down to his trailing mate to lend some support and crest the gap again.




Another lovely sunset from our third floor window, actually Sierra's room. She has the best view in the flat.

Great pics, Redbeard!

And your Sierra is no different than mine; best room in the place.

Wow, makes me want to visit! The trees are already turning quite a bit from the looks of things. I've heard about how beautiful the fall is there. Sigh.

I want to run out of the office and hop on my bike immediately! Damn 8 hour work day...

I've been to Vermont once, and I absolutely LOVED it. Beautiful!

Very pretty! Kind of reminds me of Nova Scotia.

Loving the autumn pics. I love the way the leaves all turn beautiful colours. Pity I dislike the cooler weather though...
