My companions for the first part of the ride. Yes, they just got married! This was quite the honeymoon.
First big view from East Colrain Road, looking down, I think, into the Green River valley.
I believe Carla noticed the banana in my pocket (which I grabbed from the first water stop, knowing I might wouldn't see lunch until 36 miles into my ride) and Curious George, who loves bananas, on my jersey.
State line on a major road (by the standards of the D2R2).
A private bridge on Route 112 in Vermont. The folks parked on this side of the river and walked over the bridge to their house. I'm not sure if this is Hurricane Irene damage but you can see the substantial footings in some disrepair.
I didn't stop at the gun shop. It did remind me of a tour in 1996. We stopped for lunch in Whitingham, VT on a rainy day. We saw a guy there with a pistol in his belt (no holster). I guess Vermont has open carry laws.
19th century headstones in a cemetery on Jacksonville Stage Road.
Tandem riders on the 115K.
A meadow overlooking the valley in the distance.
Near the lunch spot, almost in the valley.
Julian from the Buffalo Lazy Randonneurs.
Mike from ANT.
