Our first day will be exploring, the Mad River Valley;
an area that is a club favorite. This river valley is a gently-sloped stretch of fertile land lying along both sides of the river between Moretown and Waitsfield Villages. The heart of the district is the Mad River, which snakes through the length of the valley, and is paralleled by Vermont Routes 100 and 100B. The landscape and buildings of the district still retain the character of a rural farming community, reflecting over two centuries of cultivation of the flat farmland along the river, contrasting with the heavily wooded hills bordering the valley.
The second day we will be exploring the White River Valley with its multiple branches through traditional Vermont scenic rolling farm land. This area has the highest concentration of Covered Bridges in the State.
It is an area that still maintains a look of Vermont of yesteryear.
Our group meal will be a buffet Sunday night back at the hotel.
