Trail Work day a Success

Saturday was spent with some gracious volunteers from the Outdoor Club at VT and the VT Recreation Society. We went to work on the Indian Trail (1.75 mile loop around the lake) which was in desperate need of some loving. The rhododendron was so thick you could barely walk through in places. Our volunteers lopped away, making it passable for the many hikers that frequent this popular trail. Thanks guys!

5" of snow!

I did not attempt to go to work today because of the road conditions..but Jeremy did drive up this morning and reported 5" of snow. I would suggest 4wheel drive if you drive up the mountain for skiing today! I will post some pictures tomorrow.
