The Green Mountains are where I became a backpacker. The beautiful rolling hills traversed by long trail make for an excellent outing, any time of year. Vermont is where I figured out what it meant to 3 season hike, where I gained an awesome appreciation for complete absorption into the wilderness.
The Green Mountains are a fantastic place to visit. I never saw green until I came to Vermont. It is my desire some day to traverse the entire state end-to-end following the long trail. Many of the photos here are snipets from the entire 270 mile trail.
