    Biking in Bennington

    Arla, a local artist in Bennington has opened up her home for thru-hikers since 2004. We are sleeping in the garage she has converted to a hiker home tonight. I didn't expect to walk in and see hardwood floors and a pool table. I'm still amazed at how kind people are to hikers on the AT.

    Arla happened to have three bikes, which she let us ride into town. We took a little tour of the covered bridges and other historic sites, that are luckily still standing after the storm. We also went downtown and saw Arla's current bicycle art exhibit on display. We'll be heading out tomorrow, but not before checking out the Garlic and Herb Festival going on this weekend. I hear they sell garlic ice cream there. I can't leave town without first finding out why the hell they would do that.
