The Infamous Radar Road
I ended my second full day in the Northeast Kingdom by traveling down Radar Road, in the wilds northeast of Lyndonville. It was quite pretty, as you can see, with the trees closing in all around me, though strangely there was little orange or red here, very unlike the rest of the region in 2012. It was also a somewhat scary; I'm quite accustomed to driving on dirt roads, but this road was so rough and bumpy, and so remote, that at several times I almost turned around and went back the way I came. The road also gained quite a bit of elevation, with this image having been taken at just over 2000 feet. Even my GPS stopped working here!
I later found out that Radar Road is somewhat infamous for being a harrowing experience for the unwary. It was especially so for me as I did it very late in the afternoon on a gloomy day; in fact, it was so dark that this is a 20-second exposure, which is why so many of the leaves look blurry (due to wind motion).
