Squeaky George (Alex)

Today, we went to Lee, Massachusetts. Along the way, we stopped at the Quechee Gorge.

The selfie of the day

There was a really cool swimming spot, that Anna, as always, went out to the furthest point she could. But we didn’t swim.

After some driving, we saw a cool covered bridge.

We then went to a Maple Syrup farm (rated #1 activity on Trip Advisor in that area). We tried some syrup, tried some cheese, and then took a tour of the farm. There was an 8 minute video that talked about the farm. This video was unlike any you would usually see in California, because it had a couple of religious quotes. We then went on a trail, that went around the trees to see how they tap them for syrup. The holes were really high up on the trees, because the holes were done in winter.

For the record…

20140701-212534-77134019.jpg…the highest snow (’07-’08) was 12′ 8″ above the normal terrain. 2nd highest was ’03-’04 at 12′ 4″. That explains why the holes were so high. We really enjoyed the maple syrup farm.

After that, we went to Simon Pearce, a factory that does glass blowing in the area. We saw the workers doing glass blowing, and then drove to Lee, Massachusetts. We got to the hotel, which wasn’t the best surprise. We had to move rooms 3 times (because the rooms weren’t clean). Everything was good, except for the hotel.

This is what happened today.

Ps: This is what the blog looks like while editing:

  1. By the way, we hit 1,000 miles today. Heres to 2,000!

    This means that in 7 days, we drove 1,000 miles. About 143 miles each day. 🙂

    Lucky thing your parents are doing this as a bicycle tour! Maybe next year. How does the US rank vs Europe?
