Quechee Gorge Near Woodstock, VT

This is not the Woodstock of 1960s music festival fame.  That one is in New York.  We are so near to this small town that all our travels pass either through or on the north side of their river. We also stopped at Quechee Gorge which is known as Vermont’s Grand Canyon and it is 165 feet deep.  Went back the next morning to get a better shot of the fall color but hard to do since it is so deep and narrow, but here it is!  We asked the store owner there about the impact of the storms last September from Hurricane Irene.  They said the level in the river rose 60 feet in 3 hours.  Now that is a lot of water in this area.  The damage to covered bridges, farms, roads and buildings is evidenced everywhere and we where able to get some shots of the Taftsville Covered Bridge which is still closed.

On Thursday we drove 35 miles through the Killington Ski area into Rutland to verify whether we could park the rig closer for us to work there next week.  After driving north, south, east and west we could not find anything without a long daily commute, so returned to our campground and made other arrangements.  We will relocate within this park, stay here then drive to Rutland, and stay in hotels for 3 nights, leaving our trip out of here on Oct 5 an easy retrace back into Portland, ME.  Not sure why there is a problem with RVs in Rutland but not even room to boondock in their Walmart parking lot.
