The Bennington Battle Monument

While driving through Bennington, Vermont, we suddenly saw a huge stone obelisk on the horizon and went to investigate. We found that the Bennington Battle Monument was a memorial to to events of the American War of Independence, which was completed in the late 1890s at a reported cost of $120,000. For a cost of $2 you can take an elevator to over half way to the top of the 306′ structure. There are some excellent views of the Vermont countryside from that vantage point.

Showy Lady’s Slipper

Just a few miles from house, in a swampy area of open woods, I noted a stand of fist sized flowers. It was a the beautiful northern orchid called Showy Lady’s Slipper. I had never seen it before, it was more than ample reward for getting a bit damp in the rain.
