~Robert Frost's Vermont~

Although claimed by New Hampshire, Robert Frost spent over 24 summers in Vermont. He founded the Middlebury College School of English located in the Green Mountain National Forest near Ripton, VT. His cabin, which is now owned by the college, is a short distance from the school. There is also a trail through the forest named for him. Many of his poems were inspired and written in this area of Vermont. Seeing his cabin and walking his trail were very inspiring to me.

All buildings are the same design

And the same color

The sign at the start of the Robert Frost Trail

Some of his poems are posted along the trail

And another

A blueberry field

A creek feeding the White River

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep"

The Trail

Tree fall

A closer look

Above ground roots

More trail


A view from the trail

And yet another

His cabin nestled in the woods

A closer look

Even closer

I felt his presence. It was awesome.

The view he had

A closer look at the Green Mountains

Music is "Shadow Dancing"
