Back in Saint Johnsbury, Vermont for a few days called for checking out the Saturday Farmer's Market, lunch and then a bike ride on the Lamoille.
Melanie and I camped along the Moose River at Moose River Campground which is 3+ miles from downtown Saint Johnsbury. It was a chilly Fall morning so we bundled up and arrived on our bikes at the Farmer's Market around 10:30 a.m.
The market was not too busy as we dismounted and began walking among the booths. Melanie spoke briefly with a gentleman who was please to see she was wearing a helmet. As this was happening, another man was asking me about my bike.
Melanie left me and explored the market while I continued to talk to the man about our travels and our use of the Ebikes for getting around. As I've mentioned before, part of the charm of travel is getting to talk to local folks.
We purchased locally roasted coffee and then found lunch.
Afterwards, we rode around town for a bit and then parted ways, Melanie wanting to explore a cemetery where descendants of one of her board are buried, me riding off to the eastern terminus of the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail. I should mention Barre, Vermont is nearby where Rock of Ages Granite Quarry is located thus many of the headstones found in many cemetaries in Vermont are magnificent.
The Lamoille Trail will eventually make its way all the way across the state of Vermont and my understanding is that work is currently being done to make that happen.
The temps rose into the 50's as I made my way west stopping to make photos along the way. The leaf colors were glorious. Highly recommended.
