Photo Of The Week
The Real Trail
These shots, taken from various vantage points along the rail trail, offer a wonderful sense of the history and beauty that the finished LVRT will offer. While most views are from the original rail bed, a few were taken along the completed section in Swanton. Photos by Jim Giberti and Kevin Russell.
Kevin Russell’s Journey
In October 2005, Kevin Russell, an early friend of the LVRT, set out to hike the entire length from St. Johnsbury to Swanton. He covered the nearly 100 mile distance in five days, enjoying some of the small town hospitality along the trail. (In a way, Kevin was the Lewis…or Clark of the new East-West Adventure.) These are some of the shots Kevin took at different points along the original railbed. They’re taken during a somber, solitary time of year in Vermont, and are a wonderful record of his journey.
*Email us your shots in j-peg format, no bigger than 1000px wide.
