Today was spectacular! It was an absolutely beautiful ride from New York, through the Champlain Valley and into Vermont. I rode with a college friend of my mom’s named RB Klinkenberg. He lives in Burlington, Vermont and took me through some of his favorite places. We checked out Fort Ticonderoga and the rest of the Lake Champlain area. Honestly, it was one of the most beautiful rides of the trip so far and I used to live nearby! (I lived in Vermont from when I was one until I was five and I moved to North Carolina). I had a lot of fun and I look forward to a rest day tomorrow before the final push!
