Jenn and I and the Mountain Dog met Rich in Vermont today, at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park. I had never heard of it, but it’s a great little park right outside the town of Woodstock, with many trails for snowshoeing and skiing. We did 5 or 6 miles, on and off trail, including going over the frozen pond called The Pogue. Today was supposed to be absolutely frigid but hiking at the lower elevation, it was just fine.
