Venture Vermont — Groton State Forest


Published August 3, 2009 at 11:25 a.m.

My family made more progress toward our free Vermont State Parks passes over the weekend. We're doing the Venture Vermont Outdoor Challenge. Click on the link to read more about it.

We visited Groton State Forest on Saturday and racked up a bunch of points at New Discovery State Park, Kettle Pond and Seyon Lodge. The first photo is from Seyon Lodge, the second shows a newt (or a salamander?) at Kettle Pond. See it right in the middle there?
