Taconics from the Battenkill
When most people think of Vermont, the Green Mountains come to mind, and for good reason -- they are the dominant range, running up the middle of the state. In southern Vermont, however, the Tactonics are also important; they lie mainly on the New York / Vermont border. The area in southern Vermont between the Taconics and the Greens is called the
Valley of Vermont
. (There are many other valleys in the state, of course!)
This is a simple view of part of the Taconics, taken at peak foliage, from a bridge over the Battenkill, a famous fly-fishing river.
