Vermont Winter Snowshoe Hiking

The New York Times has an article in the Travel section of its 2 March 2007 issue by Sam Hooper Samuels that is headlined "Keeping a Natural Silence on Snowshoes in Vermont."

The gist of the article is that snowshoes are a great way to get around on the snow, and that Vermont's hiking trails are a great place to do that getting around. Of Kevin Burke, from Connecticut, the article says, "In summer, he has enjoyed hiking the Appalachian Trail, which has a 150-mile section in Vermont, as well as the Long Trail, a 272-mile path between Massachusetts and the Quebec border. After joining the Green Mountain Club, he learned that the same trails could be used year-round with snowshoes."
