Had the day off and the forecast called for clear blue skies with temps in the 20's so I took full advantage and drove north to Bromley Mountain in Vermont. The trail I'd be hiking today was a section of the Long Trail/ Applachian Trail. The two coexist as one through southern Vt before the Long Trail continues its path north to Canada as the Appalachian Trail winds east towards Maine. Signage is very good along the AT/ LT with white blazes marking the AT for its entire length.
There are several small stream crossings as well as a beautiful foot bridge over Bromley Brook. Bromley Brook was completely frozen over on this day but here is one of the streams meandering through the woods.
