Floating Bridge, Brookfield, VT
27 Sep 1988, Tue (Equinox Skyline, Marble exhibit, Longest Covered Bridge)
Left about 10 and headed north along Route 41 towards Pittsfield, MA then west on Route 20 back into New York State and north on Route 22 from New Lebanon. We then took Route 7 east and crossed into Vermont near Bennington. Best colours yet. Then Route 7a to the Mt Equinox Skyline Drive, Vermont ($5 toll). Monks own it, quite steep. Went on to Proctor, VT and checked out the Marble exhibit after eating Kentucky for lunch at side of road. Continued to floating bridge at Brookfield and along to Windsor to longest covered bridge in New England (probably country) it is closed for repair. ($5 mill by NH government) so could not cross into Cornish Mills in NH. Put us out of way a bit. Continued to East Hebron eventually arriving 8.30 pm after missing the inn – Six Chimneys. Charming but I feel like I am invading stranger’s privacy. Dined at ‘Steve’s Food & Drink’ just down the road, just avoiding closing time at 9. Six Chimneys is located at the junction of Route 3A (Mayhew Turnpike) and North Shore Rd. in Hebron, NH (formerly East Hebron) just 5 miles south of the Plymouth traffic circle.
