Spending my formative years in New Zealand, long road trips were always focused on one question, where was the best swimming hole to be found? Also who could do the best bombs once we got there, but I was always terrible at doing bombs so I’ll leave that for someone else’s story.
The U.S. state of Vermont is known for many things - Ben & Jerry’s, maple syrup, covered bridges and the Von Trapp family lodge just to name a few, but some of its lesser known treasures are places you can practice bombs to your heart’s content. Beautiful little waterfalls have carved out pools in many places throughout the countryside where you can dip off the road for a sweet, if not freezing, dip in some of the cleanest and clearest water you could hope to find.
Headed to see family across the border in New Hampshire we spent the day exploring said countryside, topped off by a little freshen up thanks to Warren Falls.
