We love Vermont! After a little research, we decide to extend our time in Vermont a bit longer. Combining a bit of fitness and healthy eating with the beautiful hikes available in Vermont, we discover a spa in Killington, Vermont, which just happens to begin their season the day we're planning to move on. Additionally, we are only an hour and half away, so it seems this is a must do.
We meander the scenic drive south on 100, encompassing more covered bridges and waterfalls, they are in abundance in this beautiful state. The road brings us into the very deserted town of Killington, season is winter only here and, as we are one of the first to check in to the New Life facilities, we marvel at the isolation!
Slowly other guests arrive and an interesting bond develops among the diverse group of fellow health seekers. Our first group dinner provides the perfect scenario for introductions and we all learn a bit about each other, where we've come from, and why we're here. It's a comfortable, warm environment, and although our accommodations are quite basic, more of a summer camp feel, we are feeling we've made the right choice for getting back on track in this safe place.
