We'll get back to Mellotrons in a minute. We took a break from them during the weekend to head out around Jerry's area for a bit of touristy fun!
The Mellotron Ranch is off a dirt road somewhere in Vermont, not far from Burlington. It's all woods. Mt. Mansfield, Vermont's highest peak, is a few miles away, as are Smuggler's Notch, Stowe, and the capital of Montpelier. Canada is a stone's throw, too. Jerry, Dave, and Bernie drove off for the afternoon to catch some of the nearby touristy areas and scenery.
The Von Trapp Family Lodge
Then it was over to Stowe, which is a very popular tourist area not far from the capital of Montpelier. Stowe is essentially a ski resort town known for its artsy shops and restaurants, and in nearby Waterbury, it's Ber & Jerry's...uhhh, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream.
Then it was back to the Mellotron Ranch for a nice afternoon on the deck and some good eats with some great steak tips and some fixins that Mali Korb had prepared (including BBQ'ed corn...sorry, Peg, I chowed on your share).
Vermont in the summertime cannot be beat! Our weather was perfect, although a fall chill was in the air at night, which was to be expected in early September.
Now that the tour is over, let's get back to things 'tronic! -->
