Throwback Adventure – Coburn Covered Bridge – Vermont

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. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In February 2019 Shadow and I Adventured to the Coburn Covered Bridge in Montpelier, Vermont.  The Coburn Covered Bridge was built in 1851 and crosses the Winooski River.  It is the only bridge in Montpelier.

We had a brown Adventure to the Coburn Covered Bridge.  The Bridge was one of our many stops on the way to our main destination.  Absolutely nothing about this Bridge was memorable, although I guess it is generally not fair to judge anything in the winter of New England.  The landscape was dry, the Bridge cracking, and the River still.  On a good note it was nice to find a bridge away from the business of a neighborhood, in a quiet country location.  We were still glad we could to visit the Coburn Covered Bridge (Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).

October 21, 2019 – Vermont State House – Vermont

This past weekend we had a getaway to Vermont, which involved many Adventures, most of which I will blog about.  We stayed in a cabin in the woods, and due to no wifi I am far behind on my blog, therefore posting much later then preferred.  However, definitely some amazing locations that I am excited to share.  I now will continue our Vermont Adventures from the weekend…in no particular order.

This weekend Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to the Vermont State House in Montpelier, Vermont.  This was the second visit for Shadow and I.  The Vermont State House was designed in 1857, and later renovated in the 1980s.  It is home for government functions, and contains famous artwork.  It is also known for the gold leaf dome, and the picturesque mountain setting.

We had a lovely Adventure to the Vermont State House on a gorgeous afternoon.  Upon arrival I was quite pleased to see the State House highlighted by bright orange, yellow, and red foliage.  This helped to mask some construction, and orange fencing within eyesight.  We made our way around the property attempting not to miss any detail.  There were paved pathways winding throughout the grounds, and several canons, and statues.  The landscaping was prestine, although somewhat past season for full bloom.  The State House was gorgeous, the distinctive gold sphere adorning the top.  The sun was shining, and the temperature just right.  I took photographs of Shadow and Wilma from various angles, and was quite delighted when a passer-bye offered to take a family photograph.  Wild Wilma decided to roll around on the cement, but posed just in time.  It was great to visit such an integral landmark.  Shadow and I had a wonderful visit in the winter of 2017, however it was extra-dark and cloudy, making the scenery on this Adventure extra striking.  So glad we could Adventure to the Vermont State House (Rating:  4).
