So much cool stuff in Burlington


Wow. This place is so cool, in so many ways. Incredible natural beauty, whimsical art, cool architecture and industrial remnants, two big co-ops… it’s a wonderland!

Yesterday I went walking again in Red Rocks Park with my hosts and their dog. The forest is large and amazing. This morning, I went out into it again to savor it a bit more.

Then I biked north along the bike path, toward downtown Burlington. I visited the gorgeous treehouse in Oakledge Park (it’s even wheelchair-accessible) as well as the Stonehenge-like Earth Clock in the same park.

Then I went to visit the south co-op again for a snack (the building with the moose mural) and right next to it was the world’s tallest filing cabinet!

After that, I visited nearby Lake Champlain Chocolates, where I picked up a few vegan truffles. (I didn’t spring for the “chocolate bar library,” but I delighted in the concept!)

Then I made my way back to Lauren and Doug’s house to bid them farewell and pick up my trailer. I hopped back onto the bike trail to get to my next Servas hosts, Heather and Ben and their son Jesse and Greyhound Emmy. (I am their first Servas guest!) We had homemade pizzas for dinner, and then took an evening walk through the art district and down to the waterfront, where a brewing storm made the sky surreal.

I’m loving this town so far.
