Day 19 - Ripton VT to Lebanon NH, 61 miles

We woke up to a beautiful clear blue sky.   The temps were in the 50s - great for climbing mountain passes.  The B&B provided a tasty breakfast to start our day.  With Middlebury Gap ahead of us and the very steep slopes we encountered yesterday we were a bit apprehensive.   The road from Ripton up to the Gap turned out to be very doable and we were over the top sooner than we thought.  

We took route 125 east from Ripton through the Middlebury Gap to route 100 heading south.  Then we turned onto route 107 east again, and over to route 14 heading south into Lebanon NH.   


Sherri on top at Middlebury Gap.  No sign for the pass but the Long Trail crosses here. 

Rebuilding Vermont.  We encountered a lot of roadwork today. Everything from bridges being replaced to repairing big landslides.   Numerous one lane road situations and at times needing to walk the bike.

Much of the route ran along the clear waters of the White River.
