October 2016 – Vermont – Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In October 2016 Shadow, Buster, and I journeyed to the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park in Woodstock, Vermont.  Sadly Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures.  He was an amazing boy, and will always be missed!  This National Park was named for George Perkins Marsh, and Frederick Billings.  George Perkins Marsh was one of the nation’s first global thinkers, while Frederick Billings, was an early conservationist.  The park includes:  trails, horseback carriage rides, a victorian mansion, and a museum.  It is also a popular location for cross-country skiing in the winter.

We choose a gorgeous, cool, fall day to visit the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park.  I did not conduct a lot of research before this adventure, so we decided to let our eyes (and snouts 🙂 ) guide us.  We wandered around the trails, and enjoyed the beautiful architecture of the mansion, and the gorgeous gardens.  There were luscious fields, landscaped gardens, and even some Robert Frost postings along the trails.  We also spent some time relaxing in front of the Victorian mansion.  It was a beautiful stop, and I do plan to visit Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park again in the future (Rating:  4).
