North Bridge at Concord, Massachusetts, where the second battle of the Revolutionary War was fought. The British, having arrived from Lexington, were on the right (east) end of the bridge; the patriots were on the left (west) end.
Having just been sworn into the Revolutionary Army as Lieutenant Sue Ritchie, Sue gives the proper commands to the patriot soldier as he goes through the steps of loading and firing his musket. The action takes place outside of Hartwell's Tavern in Concord, Massachusetts.
She-qua-ga Falls in Montour Falls, New York. This beautiful falls is right at the end of Main Street in the town.
Where Glen Creek enters the town of Watkins Glen, New York, it has cut a mile-and-a-half-long, deep gorge through the surrounding black shale. The area is protected as Watkins Glen State Park, and there is an excellent trail through the gorge.
The gorge becomes very narrow and deep just a short distance from the parking lot.
The trail goes right behind Cavern Cascade in the deepest part of the gorge.
Upstream from Cavern Cascade the green vegetation clinging to the black shale cliffs, together with the small falls, plunge pools, and potholes make a beautiful setting.
Just below Mile-Point Bridge, Glen Creek plunges over Pluto Falls.
Near Plymouth, in southern Vermont, the birthplace and home of Calvin Coolidge, the trees took on all the colors of the rainbow and were really spectacular.
A few miles east of Plymouth, at Quechee, Vermont, the Ottauquechee River has carved a deep canyon named Quechee Gorge, "Vermont's Little Grand Canyon". The bridge from which the picture was taken is 162 feet above the river.
Along scenic Highway 100 in Granville Gulf State park, in central Vermont, is Moss Glen Falls.
Farther north along Highway 100 at Waterbury, Vermont is the home of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Factory. Of course we stopped, took the tour, and had our free samples at the end of the tour. This flaming yellow and orange maple tree was in the parking lot.
Along the recreation trail in Stowe, Vermont, the yellow-orange maple leaves are translucent when viewed with the sun behind them.
