Hi everyone, hope your summer is going well. Recently I drove up to Stowe, or rather I drove up the toll road on Mount Mansfield. If you do that, which cost $26.00 bucks, you get to the top of the mountain.

Or at least one area of the top. You can then hike 1.4 miles to the highest point on the mountain, which is the highest peak in Vermont. Mount Mansfield is in Stowe, Vermont.

The long trail hiking trail also goes up there and there are several branches you can take. Anyways I took a lot of pictures and also a video using my 70X zoom camcorder.

I made a picture gallery page of the pictures, along with the video. So check it out and see all the great pictures I took plus the video. You can see the big Stowe Mountain Lodge down below.

I highly recommend going up the toll road and seeing the scenery up there. You get a great view right where you park, you don’t have to hike at all if you don’t want to. But many want to say they got to the highest point and hike to the summit. Hope you like the pictures! :)

Stowe Vermont youtube video of Mount Mansfield and gondola ride

Besides taking a lot of fall foliage pictures in Vermont this year, I managed to take some Vermont youtube videos also. One day during a sunny day this fall I took a ride up the gondola cars in Stowe.

The gondolas go up the side of Mount Mansfield, which is the highest peak in Vermont. Once you get up there you can hike, enjoy the view or eat inside the Cliff House restaurant.

Of course in the winter skiers use the gondola cars to get up there and do some nice skiing. Right across the road is the Stowe Mountain Lodge. The gondolas go right to the lodge during the winter.
